LXer: CrossOver Linux 9: Run Windows apps without Windows


Published at LXer:

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.

Supported Windows applications include Microsoft Office (from Office 97 to Office 2007), Internet Explorer 6 and 7, Outlook 2002 to 2007, all current versions of Quicken up to 2010 and QuickBooks up to 2004, and some versions of Photoshop and Photoshop CS.

commercial software it is, but I've just got some M$_win stuff to work under Linux,
that I never expected to & I'm quite thrilled about that.

So much so, that I shelled out the US$39.95 for it

some thing that I rarely do, nowadays.
