For $99, you can grab all three of these programs right now. The CrossOver Linux and CrossOver Mac are downloadable, while CrossOver for iPad is available for pre-order only. CodeWeavers encourages people to download and use any of these three programs, not just the one they prefer the most. If there is a program that you like, but it isn't available in the USA, the codeweavers.com website offers international downloads for any of the software packages.
Not everyone needs to have a copy of Linux or Mac OS X installed to engage with the world. CodeWeavers also had a limited edition of their CrossOver Linux for the iPad, which was designed for those who only need an Android tablet to connect to the Internet.

Back to Linux/Gnome:
CrossOver Linux works out of the box on any modern G3, G4, or G5. Simply install it and you'll be good to go.
2. Put in a directory of files. If you choose to put in a directory of files, then CrossOver will search the given directory for any files it doesn't recognize. This means that you can upload your entire Linux installation to CrossOver -- all of your documents, and your favorite programs. The programs can be just in the /home/username/ directory or they can be in sub-directories of /home/username/.
After the program has finished loading, you'll be asked to specify if you want to start the application, or to search for it in the installed software. If you want to start the program, you'll be given a choice of how you want to run it. The default is to start the application as the user you ran CrossOver as. You can also specify to open the program in a new window, so you can keep working and not have to close out of your browser.
Once the program is installed, you need to choose 'Welcome to ' and proceed to select 'Add an entry in the Start Menu/Start Screen', to your liking. Open the Start Menu and you'll see a new entry called CrossOver - CrossOver App Launching Tool. The item can be removed later on. 827ec27edc
