One of the most frequently asked questions by beginners, how do I run Windows software in Linux and is gaming on Linux possible?
However, these are more “do it yourself” kind of tool and there is no support available. This is where CrossOver comes into the picture.
What is CrossOver?
CrossOver is a commercial tool that lets you run various Windows Software and games on Linux and Mac OS. You don’t need to install any virtual machine, no need to buy a Windows license just to run a Windows application.
With CrossOver, you can run Microsoft Office 2013 and 365, Microsoft Outlook 2013 and play games like Elder Scrolls, World of Warcraft etc. There are over 14,000 Windows software and games supported by CrossOver. You can see the list of compatible software here.
In addition to that, CrossOver provides dedicated support so if you are stuck, you can just give them a call.
CrossOver actually runs Wine underneath, so you may argue that you can use Wine itself. And you are right. But CrossOver intends to serve people who want hassle-free experience with Windows software.
