Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Back in 2005. I talked about CodeWeavers’CrossOver Office 4.2 allowing you to install your favorite Windows productivity applications and plugins in Linux.Now there is CodeWeavers’ CrossOver Linux 6.0 that enable increasing numbers of popular Windows applications, including games, utilities, and the most critical workplace applications, to operate cleanly on Linux desktops. Note: not all Windows-based programs will work with CrossOver Linux.
This week CodeWeavers released a of the first public beta of CrossOver 6.0, with support for World of Warcraft and other big time games games like Counterstrike and Half Life 2.The Version 6 beta also sports many major improvements in the core of Wine since version 5 of CrossOver which includes fixes to Internet Explorer and fixes for many programs that would run but then crash, such as Microsoft Office 2000. It also includes Outlook 2003 fixes and it also has a new Windows XP "bottle"

CodeWeavers has also released a new public beta of CrossOver Mac. This new version enables Intel Mac users to run Windows programs on Mac OS X.

Note:It is a 60 day free CrossOver Linux Beta and there will be no support for this release...its free.If you have problems you have to direct all questions and reports to their beta center.
