Crossover allows installing Microsoft Windows based software on MacOS X or on Linux. In contrast to virtualization techniques like VMWare or Parallels, Crossover hooks API calls and redirects them to their MacOS or Linux equipollent.
As of version 8.0 these new applications are supported:
- Quicken 2009
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
- Adobe Photoshop CS2
Crossover also improved Copy and Paste functionality to and from the host operating system and improved integration with the upcoming Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
