CodeWeavers Offers Free CrossOver – 1 Day Only

3 months ago, CodeWeavers CEO Jeremy White issued a “Lame Duck” challenge for the President.  If any of those goals were met, he’d offer CrossOver free for one day.  Fast forward 3 months and at least one of his six lame duck goals were met.  Thus, CrossOver is available today only for FREE.

Some Random Linux Observations

Different Linux distros and desktop camps should recognize their differences as providing choice instead of being something that makes them different.

The problem with issue tracking systems is they have workflows of their … Continue Reading →
