CrossOver Mac is one of several commercial virtualization environment options available since the introduction of Intel processor-based Macs. Unlike Boot Camp and products that generate “virtual machines” such as Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion, CrossOver does not require installing Windows on a separate partition. The software has been developed as a proprietary branch from the WINE open source project, originally created for Linux operating systems.
CrossOver Mac 6.2 offers Microsoft Outlook users a 50 percent increase in speed, on average, over CrossOver Mac 6.1, at a minimum when running on Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard,” which is scheduled to be released later in the year. this month.
The update also supports Valve Software’s Team Fortress II game. Additionally, CrossOver Mac promises better performance than other similar products, according to CodeWeavers CEO Jeremy White.
