"CodeWeavers has released CrossOver Office 5.0 for Linspire.
Linspire users who purchase CrossOver Office can run dozens of
Windows applications, including Microsoft Office 2003, Adobe
Photoshop and Intuit's Quicken and Quickbooks, natively from their
Linspire desktop Linux operating system.
"'Businesses tell us they want to switch to the desktop Linux
operating system to reduce total cost of ownership or improve
security, but it's the thought of losing one or two software
applications--like Quickbooks or Microsoft Project--that holds them
back,' said Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, Inc. 'CrossOver Office
is genius because it removes that hesitation from the equation.
Yes, you can still use Quicken or Microsoft software on your
Linspire machine, but you don't have to overpay for a Windows
operating system license to do it...'"
