CodeWeavers Releases Crossover Office 9.0 for MAC and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading developer of 
| software products that turn Mac OS X and Linux 
| into Windows-compatible operating systems, 
| today announced the release of CrossOver 9.0 
| for both Mac and Linux. CrossOver allows 
| Windows software to be used on Mac and Linux 
| PCs without the need for a Windows operating 
| system license.


CrossOver 9.0 Improves Windows Application Support on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| CodeWeavers, supporter of the open source Wine 
| project, have released their latest version of 
| CrossOver for Linux and Mac. CrossOver 9.0 
| (codenamed âSnow Mallardâ) is a commercial 
| product that makes installing Windows 
| applications via Wine extremely easy for Linux 
| users. Weâve been waiting for this new release 
| for several months, and it seems it was worth 
| the wait.  So far, weâve tested it with Office 
| 2007 and IE 7 with great results. Look for a 
| full review at a later time. For now, here is 
| an overview of the new features and some 
| screenshots.



Wine status report: Photoshop CS3

,----[ Quote ]
| Wine is one of the fastest developed open source applications. A new Wine 
| version is released every two weeks. Not only can you run World of Warcraft, 
| but new and heavy games like Call of Duty 4 are also supported. One 
| application that users have been wanting to run on Linux for several years is 
| Adobe Photoshop. Weâve been doomed to use version 8 until recently. Google is 
| helping out with the development to have Photoshop CS3 supported. As for now, 
| Photoshop CS2 runs without any problems.

| "About 200 patches were committed to winehq, and as of wine-0.9.54, Photoshop 
| CS2 is quite usable," Kegel noted in a separate post. 


Does WINE + Linux support more Windows apps than Vista?

,----[ Quote ]
| WINE supports most of the applications which are made for Windows
| 2.0 up to Windows XP. WINE has the ability to run different versions
| of IE, run most of Adobe's products, run World of Warcraft, Half Life
| 2, Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2000 and 97, Visio, Quicken,
|     * Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
|     * Need for Speed Carbon
| [...]
| What about drivers, hardware support, and upgrades?
| Want to upgrade you XP to Vista? no chance. might as well do a fresh 
| install and shell out $300.

| improvements is a theme for Wine applications that matches the GTK theme. 
| Canât wait until April?
