What are people saying about CrossOver

Gonzo Glad to see Codeweavers around! ;)
I'm a current user of Crossover Linux Pro and can say it's an excellent software.
People needing to use Windows apps under Mac should definitely consider getting this. This app provides "guaranteed" compatibility with quite a large list of Windows apps and is easier to use and configure than Wine.

Also, these guys help making Wine better and more compatible, so that's definitely another reason to buy!

I hope we see Crossover Linux around here as well for all fellow Linux users.

Wes Cartwright So... is this also for the Linux version? I ask because of the last paragraph and the system requirements.

Rick Truell Since most virii and malware come in the form of executable Windows programs, if such a program were transferred to the computer while using a Linux/Mac web browser or e-mail client, would CrossOver cause the virus/malware to be installed?

Doug Atkinson I don't work for Crossover, but on the Buy Now page both Linux and Mac versions are available. Two separate licenses, each at the same cost.

Also, many viruses are indistinguishable from legitimate software, so yes, I would expect that some viruses would execute. How they might work (or not) in the Mac environment would highly vary depending on the particular virus and what it actually does.

I believe there are some Mac anti-virus programs that direct Windows viruses (since many Macs may share the same file share) if you are highly concerned about this.

Goran Janevski Ok, so it looks like Crossover Pro for Mac is a different product from Crossover Pro for Linux. Do we get a further discount if we buy both?

Also, what is the cost of upgrades?

Thanks,

Jana Schmid Rick Truell- I am the Markting Manager for CodeWeavers, the makers of CrossOvers. In regard to your virus question, tere are a few different ways to answer this. First, it is possible to a virus to install within CrossOver by use of a browser or other means. It would infect the bottle within CrossOver and would look to go further. At this point the virus would likely not be able to proceed. As a virus is a Windows application, Linux and Mac systems have no way of knowing how to continue to run the virus and it typically gets stopped in it's tracks. Linux and Mac operating systems are further protected by their own safety features that are built in...

If you need further explanation, let me know!

Jana Schmid Goran Janevski-I am the Marketing Manager for CodeWeavers. In order to upgrade, your support has to be current. So if you don't upgrade when it comes due, you will have to purchase CrossOver again.

Unfortunately, there is no discount for purchasing both. Both are already discounted 50%!

And yes, the cost of an upgrade is $35.

Robert Reese I echo Gonzo's remarks. I've been a Linux Pro user for a couple of years, and the product has been rapidly enhanced throughout, without any sign of slowing down. In fact, I have two licenses. While I do have an XP install via VirtualBox, I rarely have to use it as Crossover handles nearly everything I need. Granted, it does NOT work on ALL Windows applications, which is why I still have a backup with VirtualBox for a couple of seldom-used apps.

My favorite part is that it does not have the performance drag VirtualBox has, leaving more processing and memory usage for running other applications simultaneously. Further, the Windows applications feel like a normal application rather than being run inside a VM (Virtual Machine).

BTW, my Linux Pro included the Crossover Games software (I don't know if it does with the Mac version). That was a big part of keeping a Windows 98 and a Windows XP VirtualBox on my desktop. Not any more.

I don't have a Mac, and never plan to. But many people that do all seem to highly regard the Mac version of Crossover, and most swear Crossover is a must-have for them. Given my experience, I'm not surprised.

Lastly, I am a student, and when I clicked on the Buy link I discovered that my account login session was still active. What happened is that both the Bits du Jour discount was stacked with my education discount! What a nice, unexpected surprise. Alas, my licenses don't expire until summer of 2012, so while this is a fantastic deal I will wait until next semester to renew.

My advice is to grab this deal if you have a Mac or Linux machine, especially if you are a student.

Goran Janevski MS Office 2007 installed fine.

BUT... the shortcuts to start the Office applications are not in the menu on Ubuntu 10.10 with Gnome, as the help documentation states.

So I had to fish around to find a way to start the apps.

They may work, as I haven't tested them myself, but some people have pledged money to have them supported, so they probably don't work.

Rick Truell Jana: Thanks for the response. I've also spent some time since I posted my question wandering around the CodeWeavers website. It seems that the differences in technology between CrossOver and Wine (CrossOver's use of a "bottle" per program) pretty much eliminates any concerns I had regarding virii. Worst-case scenario seems to be that only the individual bottle the virus got installed in, and any other program already in that bottle, would be infected...and a quick restore of the backup of that bottle (if it already contained a needed program) would fix the program and eliminate the virus.

This is cool. If only it was as simple under Windows :-(

Toni McConnel One of my favorite and most useful programs of all time is MyInfo for Windows. There is no other information manager that comes even close to MyInfo. But here is no version for Mac, and when I asked the publisher if he intended to do a Mac version he said this would never happen because MyInfo "depends on Windows technology" but he did not explain. Has anyone tried to run MyInfo under CrossOver Mac?

Toni McConnel Good news for MyInfo lovers! I just installed Crossover on my Mac Mini running Lion OS, then installed MyInfo (not on CodeWeavers supported applications list) and it works! Typeface quality is slightly poor but that's only mildly irritating since it's the program functions that are far more important, otherwise everything in the program works fine so far.

BTW, if you don't know about MyInfo and are frustrated trying to find a task manager that allows infinite levels of subtasks, MyInfo is it. Much more than a task manager, however. Excellent for organizing any kind of information or project, especially if you don't want all that team type of clutter most info managers have these days.

I got to this page (the one for the CrossOver Mac Professional) by clicking on the newsletter link... however if I go to the BDJ homepage, the promotion is not mentioned at all.

Is this some kind of "subscribed-only" promotion?
Shouldn't it be available to everyone through the homepage as well, to help promote the product and sales?

Royce Englehart When I go to purchase CrossOver Linux it shows up as... "CrossOver Linux - 6 months". Does this mean CrossOver Linux has only a 6 month license?! In the product description above, it states... "you'll enjoy a consistent stream of software updates and improved support for 6 months!". Does the program stop working after 6 months or is there just no support and/or updates after that? If CrossOver only works for 6 months it isn't a license but a subscription, and a short one @ that.

Jana Schmid Hi Royce,
CrossOver Linux - 6 Months, means that you will receive support and upgrades for six months. After that CrossOver doesn't stop working, you can still use it, but if you want to upgrade to the latest version you will need to renew your license. Hope that helps!

Toni McConnel I downloaded the trial version of CrossOver XI to my Mac and the three programs I installed seem to work OK so far. However, in two of them, when I want to open a file (the third program doesn't open files) the directory only displays a partial list of what is there. And never the one I want, of course. 8-) One of the programs is Quicken 11, which is on your list of supported programs, the other is MyInfo. Can you explain this? Inability to see files in directory renders Crossover useless to me. I am running OS Lion 7.5 on a Mac Mini.

lemonade soda This is a very interesting product. Initially confused by the "magic"... was it a Cloud service, was it installation of independent API services, it turns out that CrossOver is based on Wine. http://en.wikipedia.org/w..._(software) . I had forgotten about Wine many years ago... nice to see that it is still alive and kicking and being developed further.

My biggest interest would be to get MS Office working. I think a lot of people like myself are interested in using their legacy application licenses on a Mac. But Office 2003/2007 are only marked as "silver" compatibility which means i) is mostly works, but some bugs, and ii) CrossOver makes a commitment to get silver applications to gold.

But that is a very important question. What does "commitment" mean? How long will it take? If I buy CrossOver today I want it to work with the applications that I have today that you commit to work with. But there is no timetable of compatibility, and your license expires in 6 months.

I would buy today if CrossOver came with an indefinite license. But limited to 6 months of upgrades? No. With no guarantee my applications compatibility will be fixed in this timeframe? No. I'll wait and see. And I think many other target customers will be of the same mindset. Problem is... in 3 months this promotion will be long gone and CrossOver will have been forgotten.

CHARGE $10 MORE... but give people permanent licence. And do it now. It is a false economy to try and turn your existing customers into a captured revenue stream. We hate it. Do it in the corporate world, maybe. But not private customers.

Robert Reese I've been using Crossover for Linux for a couple of years now; it is what really made it possible for me to use Linux as my PRIMARY operating system. It was not unusual for me to only boot into Windows once every three or four months, and then only for a very specific purpose (until this Fall semester where I had to have a multimedia workflow that required all the horsepower my laptop could give).

Still, it is the solution I needed for the software I used.

By the way, it is not the perfect solution. Some software runs perfectly, some has minor annoyances, some barely work, and some don't work at all. But for the majority of software I use, it either works perfectly or with minor annoyances.

And yes, this is FAR SUPERIOR than WINE alone, even though it is the same company developing both. Think of WINE as the "Lite" version of CrossOver.

Jana Schmid @Toni McConnel,
The behavior you describe is expected. When an application requests access to a filesystem, we honor the request of the location it asks for. In the case of many applications, this is within the would be Windows tree which is buried on the MacOS within CrossOver. While we could adjust the place CrossOver points a user it would adversely affect other applications that expect this behavior. Due to this fact we recommend users be aware of where the file manager will place them and use their existing tools to locate files within their system.

Jana Schmid @lemonade soda,
We take our user experience very seriously, so I asked the Vice President of Sales, James Ramey to answer your concerns. Here is what he had to say.

"Thank you for your interest in CrossOver.

First, you are absolutely correct in that CrossOver is an implementation of Wine. Essentially, it’s Wine with a proprietary XServer which allows for compatibility on the Mac platform. The proprietary bits that we’ve added to CrossOver are not currently available in Wine (which is why Wine does not work on OSX), and the proprietary bits are not in Wine only because they have not been accepted by the Wine Maintainer as he feels these ‘hacks’ are not polished enough to go into Wine (all other development that we do is submitted to Wine and incorporated – if accepted – into future releases of the OpenSource Project).

Second, your assessment regarding applications is somewhat limited. MS Office 2003/2007 are marked as ‘Silver’ only because the developer (in this case Microsoft) has no plans to certify the applications. We tend to only mark an application as ‘Gold’ under the most rigorous standards (which never happens as the liability tends to be greater – meaning not one thing can ever go wrong in a Gold application – than the certification tends to be worth) or if the developer certifies the application. However, there are several thousands (tens of thousands) of users running CrossOver specifically for Office 2003 and 2007 compatibility with great success (and no known issues). That stated, we offer a free trial of our software so that you can test these claims for yourself. Don’t take our word for it. Try the software OR go to the forums and read what other ‘real world users’ (not employees) have to say about their experiences with CrossOver. Most are very blunt and to the point about what doesn’t work (for them). But again, I don’t believe you’ll see any real issues with Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Active Directory doesn’t work with Outlook (otherwise that’s quite good). Project and Visio work (more to what I would believe to be ‘Silver’ rating). OneNote is a dicey application in CrossOver (rated Bronze, but I would rate unsupported). And Access does not work at all.

Commitment? We work to improve the software every single day. We’re working on a number of features in the application to improve support. We have updated CrossOver six times this year (one was a major upgrade). How long a development takes is how long a development takes. We can’t reasonably state that something will work tomorrow or next week or even next month. But then again, you get all the improvements that were made to CrossOver over the last 16 years that now ‘come’ with the program as part of your support. And if it’s Office Applications that you want to work, I am quite certain that they all do today (with the exception of Access).

We’re not in the business of providing lifetime support. No one in the software business provides lifetime support. Not Apple. Not Microsoft. Not our competitors (Parallel or VMWare – which are both more expensive and require you to also purchase and install Windows). Not any anti-virus software developer (theirs is also a subscription model). And this list goes on and on and on. Lifetime support is a lie (quite frankly) as no one can account for what tomorrow’s technology developments will be, and no developer (not Microsoft, Apple, or Google) can promise that their software will work on their platforms in one, three, five, or ten years. We won’t engage in this type of business practice as we feel its deceiving. And if that means you wait to use or software or decide to purchase a competitor’s solution, we understand. But if buying a product that you can try first (with no limitations other than for 14 days) and can purchase at a significant discount that includes six months of support and the option to continue support for a year after that for $30.00 (USD) isn’t appealing to you, chances are a lifetime license would be equally unappealing.

Thank you again for your comments. We appreciate your interest in CrossOver, and we hope that you do decide to try our product (free trial available at www.codeweavers.com). Our very best regards."

R A I also used Crossover on my Linux system so that I could run certain Windows programs. The use of Crossover also allowed me to convert entirely to Linux. I paid for new licenses of CrossOver for several years and was so impressed, that even when I was forced to use Windows as my main OS, I still purchased a Crossover license to support them. Its not expensive, and well-worth it to me to support companies that give so much to the open-source movement.

Fantastic company, forthright and dedicated to open-source. I will be buying another license as soon as I can switch back to Linux!

disenchanted This is the best timing timing ever. ;^)

I just found out about this product a few weeks ago and was I have been looking to buy the linux version for the past 2 weeks or so.

But, I had been looking to get the 1 year version vs the 1 month.


Questions:

1. How much are renewals?
(I tried to look it up on your website but a person needs a Codeweaver account in order to get renewal rates. I don't own any of your products yet so I did not sign up for an account)

2. Does a person really "need" an ongoing renewal subscription?
(I assume that most updates are related to major new product releases; like when MS office 2007 went to office 2010).


Thanks for offering this on BDJ.

R A The Crossover licenses are for support only. The software version that you bough doesn't expire. Its just like if you buy MS Office. You can get updates for Office 2007. But when Office 2010 comes out, you have to buy a new version. I purchased 2 years of Crossover licenses & support and hardly ever needed to use the support anyway. I can still use my old version of Crossover 10.

Its a great application and the company is a driving force behind the open-source WINE. When I return to Linux, I will certainly be purchasing Crossover again. Great application, great support, always pleased to purchase things from a company with integrity and dedication to community and open-source

Jana Schmid Amit

1.) No it can't run on damn small linux. The last time we checked, Crossover can run on Puppy if you have the development packages installed. In general, Crossover doesn't run well on the "lightweight" Linux distros because they lack the system libraries necessary to support Crossover's functions.

2.) Crossover will run in a linux distro on a VM. USB should be fine, your milage with a CD will vary because you will almost certaintly need to install new system libraries in order get Crossover running. If you're installing from the appropriate .deb or .rpm package your package manager should install these additional libraries, automatically.

2.) Crossover will keep running after your subscription runs out, but you won't be able to get any upgrades, which may include bug fixes in the mentioned applications.

Support starts from the moment you buy CrossOver.

VLM Last promotion, you wrote: 'We are aiming at supporting MS Office 2010 in our next major release of CrossOver,. The date for that release has not been set yet.'

Current status?

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?

Thanks.....

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 M 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.
