CrossOver 16 Debuts with Support for Microsoft Office 2013, 64-bit Windows Apps

CrossOver 16 is now the most advanced stable release of the commercial software that allows GNU/Linux and Mac OS X users to run applications and games designed only for Microsoft Windows operating systems, and it looks like the biggest new feature is support for installing and running the Microsoft Office 2013 office suite. CrossOver 16 is based on a development release of the upcoming Wine 2.0 open-source software project, which just got its first Release Candidate (RC1) build last week, and it’s also the first version of the application to allow users to install 64-bit Windows apps. To support more apps and games, CrossOver 16 ships with extra automatic install recipes.
