“Well, I mean, what choice did we have?” says CodeWeavers CEO.
SAINT PAUL, Minn. (July 18, 2011) — CodeWeavers, Inc., CodeWeavers, Inc., a leading developer of software products that turn Mac OS X and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems, not surprisingly announced today the release of CrossOver 10.1 and CrossOver Games 10.1.1 for Mac with support for Lion OS. Both versions of CrossOver are available immediately. CrossOver allows Windows applications and games to be played on Mac and Linux PCs without the need for a Windows operating system license.
In one of its most boring press releases in ages, CodeWeavers simply announced that, yes, its flagship CrossOver products now run on Apple’s much-anticipated Lion OS release. “There wasn’t much choice in the matter, now was there?” opined Jeremy White, CodeWeavers CEO. “I mean, if we don’t ship Lion support, we look like doofuses.”
Founded in 1996 as a general software consultancy, CodeWeavers focuses on the development of Wine – the core technology found in all of its CrossOver products. The company's goal is to bring expanded market opportunities for Windows software developers by making it easier, faster and more painless to port Windows software to Linux. CodeWeavers is recognized as a leader in open-source Windows porting technology, and maintains development offices in Minnesota, the United Kingdom and elsewhere around the world. The company is privately held. For more information about CodeWeavers, log on to www.codeweavers.com.
