"It's Mac in the back; Windows in the front. Gadfly software company, CodeWeavers, Inc., today releases CrossOver Impersonator Edition. This latest edition greatly increases the ease of running Windows software on Macs and Linux PCs without the need for a Windows operating system license.

"Impersonator Edition also includes CodeWeavers new "CrossTie" installer, which lets users install hundreds of Windows applications with just a click of a button. CrossTie communicates directly with CodeWeavers massive compatibility database (c4.codeweavers.com), which lists thousands of software applications including basic office packages, educational software and highly popular games that Windows-less individuals can now operate through Impersonator.

""One click on CrossTie and bam! users are set to run applications on their Mac or Linux machine," said CodeWeavers CEO Jeremy White, fetchingly attired as the incomparable Lucille Ball, complete with stunning red wig. "Whether it's the latest Steam game, some random knitting program or Microsoft Office, we put Windows' lipstick on your Mac, quickly and guiltlessly." "
