CrossOver Mac - by James B. Ramey, VP of Sales, CodeWeaver

CrossOver Mac enables Intel-based Macs to run Windows applications. It works differently from virtualization software like Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion because it doesn't require Windows to be installed in order to run Windows software.CrossOver is closely tied to an open source project for Linux operating systems called WINE, which provides a translation layer that enables Windows applications to operate on x86-based computer architectures. CodeWeavers is the leading corporate backer of the Wine Project.

CodeWeavers will demonstrated CrossOver Mac 7.1 in two separate applications:  business applications and gaming.  For business, CrossOver Mac 7.1 provides support for applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Outlook.In running enterprise business applications in this manner, CrossOver Mac 7.1 provides for lower upfront and on-going costs.  For gaming, CrossOver Mac 7.1 is able to run the games that require intense support for graphics and sounds.
