CrossOver Office gets better with age
Nov. 16, 2005

One of the most common reasons people give for not migrating to a Linux desktop is that it won't run their favorite Windows applications,'s Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols writes. That excuse is now less valid, thanks to the latest update to CrossOver Office, which has just turned five.

"With CodeWeavers Inc.'s latest CrossOver Office 5, you can run many of the most popular Windows applications on Linux," Vaughan-Nichols writes. "CodeWeavers has been doing this for sometime now. Our Labs folks were pretty happy with Version 3.0.1, and it's gotten a lot better since then."

"How much better? Today's CrossOver Office 5.0 supported application list includes Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2000 and 97, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio, Lotus Notes 6.5.1 and 5.0, FrameMaker, iTunes, and the one Windows program I can't live without: Intuit Quicken," he writes.

That's a pretty formidable list all by itself, although there are many more than just those.

Vaughan-Nichols tested CrossOver Office 5.0 on two Linux systems -- SUSE 10.0 and Xandros 3.0 Business Edition -- and came up with some interesting findings.
