I am not sure if this post is up to your high standards here at LinuxToday so ill try to explain the post a little, I am a American living in the Philippines and I visit China and other locations in Asia frequently. I advocate open source and Wine on a regular basis.. And I always get comments that CodeWeavers CrossOver is a little expensive when in fact its dirt cheap here. They have international pricing and a full copy can be legally purchased for as low as $7.46 with a promotion code on top of the already low international pricing. I just want to spread the word about this, so people know the true cost in the geographic location. Sorry to have to explain a post but I hope it helps in getting the post accepted. Cheers -Tom
A brief description of just what CrossOver Mac or Linux entails
CrossOver allows you to install many popular Windows applications and games on your Intel OS X Mac or Linux PC. CrossOver includes an easy to use, single click interface, which makes installing Windows software simple and fast. Once installed, your application integrates seamlessly in OS X. or Linux. Just click and run your application directly from the OS X Finder or Linux Menu Bar. Clicking a Windows file or document – including email attachments – will launch the appropriate Windows program, allowing you to work on the files. Best of all, you do it all easily and affordably, without needing to purchase a Microsoft operating system license.
This link is a perfect example of wrong information, while at the same time correct information.
CrossOver Mac Version 7 brings with it a new licensing scheme. The software now comes in Standard and Pro releases, for $39.95 and $69.95 respectively. If you’ve previously licensed CrossOver Mac, you’ve been upgraded to Crossover Pro for free.”
Many people still are not aware that CodeWeavers has international pricing for CrossOver, depending upon where you live your countries GDP will reflect upon the price and the will change noticeably. Here is a international price sheet from a older post here.
