CrossOver Linux 9: Run Windows apps without Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| Some Linux users insist that anything you can 
| do on Windows, you can do better on Linux. 
| While there's some truth to that, many of us 
| have Windows applications that make 
| completely leaving Windows close to 
| impossible. That's where CodeWeavers' latest 
| version of CrossOver Linux comes in.


Windows on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Switching to Linux is easy if you know how to 
| run Windows applications on it.
| For many users considering switching to Linux 
| the biggest hurdle is a question of whether 
| they can find a suitable replacement for 
| their favourite Windows applications. While 
| sites like LinuxAppFinder list hundreds of 
| open source application alternatives it's not 
| always as straight forward as that. Many 
| users are bound, for one or other reason, to 
| using a particular application, be it because 
| there is no way to convert existing data or 
| because company policy demands they use a 
| particular application. Fortunately there are 
| a number of ways to run a good deal of 
| Windows applications on Linux.



CodeWeavers CrossOver 9.0 coming soon

,----[ Quote ]
| I thought I would give our readers the heads
| up about the soon to be released CrossOver
| 9.0. CodeWeavers CrossOver 9.0 is slated for
| launch sometime towards the end of January
| beginning of February 2010 and represents a
| major step forward for the CrossOver
| product. At this time no definite release
| date is scheduled, but it should be within
| the next month or so.


Review: Crossover Games (Linux) 8.1.3

,----[ Quote ]
| In this review Crossover Games 8.1.3 will be
| pitted and benchmarked against Wine 1.1.33
| using Everest Ultimate Edition benchmarking
| utilities (don't ask me why I use it.  I just
| happen to have it conveniently on hand.)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
