CrossOver Mac Beta Released

Codeweavers has released the public beta of CrossOver for Intel Macs.

We previously reported on CrossOver Mac, which provides a unique (Wine based) solution for running Windows applications on the Intel Mac:

Codeweaver's solution differs from solutions like Apple's Boot Camp and Parallels Desktop in that it does not require a copy of Windows to run the Windows applications. Also, applications will be able to run side by side with their Mac OS X counterparts, whereas virtualization solutions must be contained within a "Windows window" or the machine must be rebooted in the case of Boot Camp.

The free 60-day public beta is now available. Due to the nature of the software, only specifically supported Windows applications can be launched. Codeweavers maintains a compatibility list with over 2000 applications.
