CrossOver Mac allows you to install many popular Windows applications and PC games on your Mac. It's easy, affordable, and best of all, there is no Windows license required. Your Windows applications and games integrate seamlessly on your computer; just click and run. CrossOver is different from other Windows emulators [like VMWare and Parallels] because you do not actually install a copy of Windows. Instead, CrossOver uses an open-source technology called Wine, which acts as a complete replacement for Windows. There are several advantages to this, including Lower Cost You don't have to buy an emulator AND a separate copy of Windows Better Performance CrossOver runs natively on Mac OS X, meaning that you don't have to run two operating systems [Windows and OS X] simultaneously. Your system only uses the RAM and CPU for a single OS, which makes your Windows applications run more quickly and smoothly. Better Protection from Malware If you're running Windows on your Mac, your Windows partition is exposed to all the same malware and viruses Windows machines are prey to. With CrossOver, you run Windows software, without windows, so your machine is safer. CrossOver comes with an easy-to-use software installer. Once CrossOver is on your Mac, you install your Windows software under CrossOver in a matter of minutes. Just put your software CD in the drive, or let CrossOvers installer automatically install your favorite applications for you. Note CrossOver Mac runs many Windows applications, but not all.
