"CrossOver 8 will run on any modern Linux. It comes in versions for 32-bit and 64-bit Debian and Ubuntu Linux-based distributions and for 32-bit Red Hat, Mandriva, and SUSE distributions. In addition, there's a distribution agnostic version, which will install on any up-to-date Linux. While I didn't test it out to any real extent, I did find that CrossOver seemed to work just fine on Fedora 11 and openSUSE 11.1. No matter what version of Linux you run, CrossOver will do fine on all three of the popular Linux interfaces: GNOME, KDE 3, and KDE 4."

"Installing Windows applications with it is mindlessly simple. You just pick, which popular Windows application you want to install and either start the download or pop in the CD or DVD. You can also install Windows applications, which haven't been tested throughly. Some, such as my favorite HTML editor, Fookes Software NoteTab, run more than well enough to be useful. "
