Your applications integrate seamlessly in Linux; just click and run. No rebooting, no switching to a virtual machine, and no Windows Operating System license required! Adding new Windows software is easy. Just place your install CD in your machine, and CrossOver will recognize it and offer to install it or if you have an exe then rt click on it and choose run with crossOver, now installation will begin just like windows.You can also install an exe by double click on it, its as easy as on windows. Once installed, CrossOver will configure your application to run on your computer. That's all there is to it.
