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