LINUX Latest “Zombie Mallard” Release Features Support for
Left4Dead 2; Free PC Giveaway

“SAINT PAUL, Minn. (November 18, 2009) – Despite a crazed
assault of zombie playtesters on their headquarters, CodeWeavers,
Inc., a leading developer of software products that turn Mac OS X
and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems, today
announced the release of CrossOver Games 8.1 for both Mac and
Linux, available immediately.

“CrossOver Games allows Windows games to be played on Mac and
Linux PCs without the need for a Windows operating system

“The newest version, codenamed “Zombie Mallard”, allows
CrossOver customers to play the fervently anticipated sequel to the
runaway hit Left4Dead, appropriately named Left4Dead 2. “Frankly,
that’s all we need to support to justify a new release,” said
Jeremy White, bloodless President and CEO of CodeWeavers. “We had
the zombies practically beating down our doors to be able to run
the sequel. We’re particularly pleased that we were able to support
Left4Dead 2 as soon as it was released. In this way, Linux and Mac
users can also do their bit to stave off the effects of the
apocalyptic zombie plague sweeping this nation.”
