CrossOver is a Windows emulator software which enables Mac and Linux users to run a wide range of Windows applications and PC Games on their computers. It’s easy, affordable, and best of all, there’s no Windows license required. Your Windows applications and games integrate seamlessly on your computer; just click and run.
CrossOver is powered by an amazing open-source technology called Wine. Unlike other emulators, Wine is a re-implementation of the Win32 API, allowing applications to run natively on the target OS.
