    CrossOver 14.1.11 для Mac OS

     CrossOver 14.1.11 для Mac OS - Программа, позволяющая запускать многие приложения, написанные для ОС Microsoft Windows в Mac OS X, причём наличие при этом установленной Windows не требуется. CrossOver отличается от Wine более узкой направленностью: он нацелен на поддержку наиболее востребованных офисных и иных приложений Windows, таких как Microsoft Office разных версий, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Lotus Notes, Adobe Photoshop и другие. Но зато совместимость с этими приложениями тщательно тестируется и отлаживается, так что их работа обычно бывает стабильнее, чем в Wine.

    А если вы используете этот скидочный код ( CXRossiya ) вы можете сэкономить дополнительные 25% от $20.95 цене.
