Seeking simplification in an increasingly complicated world? CrossOver 12 is CodeWeavers newest title, and it enables all Mac and Linux users the ability to run Windows software and games without the need for a Windows operating system license! In a nuthshell, CrossOver 12 you immediate access to thousands of Windows applications otherwise unavailable without a Microsoft license. Whether you’re a Mac user wanting to play Wizard 101, a Linux user needing Microsoft Office 2010, or someone who really misses the ‘90s and is nostalgic for WordPerfect 3.1, CrossOver 12 is for you!
Sure, it's a handy feature to be able to install Windows on your Mac, but to make this happen, you'll need to actually purchase a Windows license, which costs money that you would much rather spend on fun things! Instead of emptying your wallet, check out CrossOver 12 Mac, and get the best of both worlds -- Windows apps on your Intel Mac, and money saved in your pocket! And With CrossOver you won't need to reboot your machine or switch to some complicated virtual machine setup -- just click on your Windows apps (as if they were regular Mac apps), and you're up and running!
You would think this magical ability to run Windows apps on your Mac without a Windows installation would take lots of brains and technical expertise to configure. Wrong! All you need to do is place the install CD of your Windows app or download the .exe file and CrossOver 12 Mac will handle the rest, seamlessly installing the application and automatically configuring it to run on your Mac. Plus, with CrossOver 12 Mac, you'll enjoy a consistent stream of software updates and improved support for 1 month!
CrossOver 12 is also available for Linux, allowing you to install your favorite Windows productivity applications and plugins in Linux, without needing a Microsoft Operating System license. CrossOver 12 Linux Professional includes an easy-to-use, single-click interface, which makes installing a Windows application simple and fast. Once installed, your apps will integrate directly with your Gnome or KDE environment. Just click and run your applications, exactly as you would in Windows, but with the full freedom of Linux.
