Chris Is there a version for PC which runs MAC programs on a PC? At the top it says it is for MAC & PC. If not, is there a program like that out there which is as easy as this to use?

govertz Here on BDJ you say this will work for Linux and Mac, but on your website you only say it's for Mac, is it for Linux too?
Are there known Windows software that won't run under Crossover?
If Crossover can run any Windows software on a Ubuntu installation, I'll buy, it would be the perfect setup.

Peter User Will Crossover run *any* Windows application on Linux, or do you have to select the application from a list of "Crossover-enabled" programs?

Jana S CrossOver runs Windows programs on Mac and Linux. We do not have a product at this time that runs Mac programs on Windows PC.

Joe McCormick Will the Windows program that can be installed in Linux run as fast as they do in Windows?

What about Windows programs that have a license to run on one computer.

I have some programs that take a footprint of my computer and know if it is being installed and run more times then the license will allow.

Will another license be needed, or does your program somehow circumnavigate the need for registering the program?

Jana S We have CrossOver for both Mac and Linux. You can find the Linux information at https://www.codeweavers.c...ver-linux/

To see if your Windows program will run with CrossOver on Mac and Linux please visit our compatibility database at https://www.codeweavers.c...atibility/

Jana S Joe- It varies by application but generally we run near native speeds and sometimes better.

CrossOver doesn't circumvent the registration process for any application. Running an application in CrossOver is still running it and the user will need to follow the software's licensing guidelines.
