Mac software will run Win apps without Windows

June 30, 2006 – Next month, a company called CodeWeavers will ship Mac OS X software for Intel-powered Macs that will enable users to run Windows XP applications, but without running Windows itself. CrossOver will also be the first solution to run PC games on any Mac.

CrossOver will run each Windows application will in a Mac OS X Window. There is no Windows desktop or start menu; Windows programs can minimize in the Mac OS X Dock. CrossOver has a Programs menu in the Mac OS X menu bar that lists Windows applications.

Crossover is not a virtualization environment or an emulator. For instance, document files created by Windows applications are stored in Mac folders, not in a virtual disk image or a separate partition.

Jeremy White, CEO of CodeWeavers, said that CrossOver will not run every Windows application, but will focus on a set of tested applications. White said that the 1.0 version will be optimized for Outlook, Project, Visio, and HalfLife 2, but other applications should work. White also said that because CrossOver has support for the Intel Macs native graphics, it will be able to run PC games.

Because CrossOver doesnt require the user to own a copy of Windows XP, the total cost of ownership will be lower than any emulator/virtualization solution, and lower than Apples free Boot Camp solution. CodeWeavers expects to sell CrossOver for US $50, and expects to ship it at the end of July.

CrossOver for Mac OS X is port of the Linux version that CodeWeaver now sells. CrossOver is a commercial version of the open source WINE software for Linux and Unix. White said that CodeWeaver is the leading sponsor of the WINE project. A Mac port of WINE, Darwine, is still in the early stages of development.

Sweet! But isnt any emulator for that matter might slowing down PCs? Been having to convert here and there (from Win native applications to Apple native applications?) Well, Im not fan of emulator but this does look nice incase got few bucks buy Apple in future hehe :smiley: :smiley:

These apps are for the new Intel powered Macs, and they run full speed.

hey, ian… besides having mac to do “windoze emulation”, what other thing can mac do? Does it focus on server technology other than web service that you mention earlier?

Have a look here. - sorry I don’t have th etime to do a full write up now.

check out this one… scroll down or search the line for “Mac OS X”…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison … ng_systems

look at what it is based on! “NeXTSTEP, FreeBSD, Mac OS”

Looks like it is worth while to look into FreeBSD.

BSD is built up from scratch for security by default. Incidentally, do an nmap scan of MiriCommunity.net - it’s hosted on FreeBSD too.

from the 2 posts, it seems like my nmap is out-dated therefore it couldn’t identify which distro http://www.miricommunity.net is hosted on.

which version or nmap you last use to scan this host?

I’m getting the same thing now too. I last checked it a month ago. They must’ve done something during that last disruption.

EDIT: Btw, I’m still using 3.70 :stuck_out_tongue:

Turns out i was confusing the other machine to do the check which had the more updated version. Yup, version 4. When i redid the check was on another machine with old version. sorry for the confusion.

Wow, you’re comprehensive eh.
