CrossOver XI Released, SW: The Old Republic Support Coming

CodeWeavers recently announced the release of CrossOver XI. The new package replaces all previous versions of CrossOver, and continues to offer Mac and Linux PC users the ability to run Windows software and games without the need for a Windows operating system license.

CrossOver XI replaces all previous versions of CodeWeavers’ CrossOver software.“No more CrossOver Games; so long CrossOver Pro (and Impersonator, and Bundle, and Platinum, and…), One download of CrossOver XI gives everyone in our universe immediate access to thousands of Windows applications otherwise unavailable without a Microsoft license,” said Jeremy White. “So, whether you’re a Mac user wanting to play Wizard 101, a Linux user needing Microsoft Office 2010, or someone who really misses the ‘90s and is nostalgic for WordPerfect 3.1, CrossOver XI is for you.”

Starting at $39.95, CrossOver XI is the most affordable software solution on the market to run your Windows applications on Mac and Linux. Sure, some solutions appear to be free or available at a comparable price, but they require you to purchase a copy of a Windows license, which can cost upwards of $100, before you can run any Windows applications. CrossOver does not. We repeat, CrossOver XI does not require you to purchase a Windows license.

“The only thing not simple about CrossOver XI is how we pronounce the name of the product,” White continued. “Should customers pronounce us as ‘CrossOver Ex-Eye,’ or as ‘CrossOver Eleven,’ or perhaps ‘CrossOver Exy,’ or as I like to refer to it, ‘CrossOver Zigh’? Considering we’re all about open source here, we’ll leave it to our customers to decide.”
Of interest to Mac gamers, CodeWeavers will soon be offering CrossOver support for Bioware's popular MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

CrossOver XI is available now, starting at $39.95.
