Run Microsoft Office 2016 and Games on Linux with CodeWeavers CrossOver 17

Yup, that means the latest version of CodeWeaver‘s commercial Wine offering also supports the latest version of Microsoft’s hugely popular Office suite, including both Home and Business editions.
And that’s big news. LibreOffice and Google Docs are near-perfect replacements for most of us, but many students and business still require the use of Microsoft Office products or file formats. As great as interoperability is these days few alternatives are as fuss-free as opting to install Office on Linux using Wine.


Other Windows software and games that feature improved CrossOver 17 support:
  • Microsoft Office 2016
  • Microsoft Office 2013
  • League of Legends
  • Everquest
  • Everquest II
  • WebSite-Watcher
  • Battle.Net
CrossOver 17 also features a large update to the Wine compatibility layer, a move that brings thousands of big fixes and usability improvements to users’ desktops and the (ever growing) array of software it supports.

Buy CrossOver 17

CrossOver 17 for Linux and macOS is available to purchase right now from the CodeWeavers website.

A free trial is also available if you want to test things out before you commit.

Wait: I thought Wine was free?

Wine is free, open-source software. It’s available to install on Ubuntu (and other Linux distributions) from the repos, for absolutely nothing.

CrossOver is (in effect) a commercial version of Wine. It’s not free; you have to pay for it. But many people are happy to do this — and no, they’re not crazy!

Putty for Mac version 8.7.x FAQ

Here is our current FAQ for "Putty for Mac" it should help answer the most common questions and support request.

(Q) What is Putty for Mac?
(A) Putty is one of the Best Terminal Emulators available today. It Supports different types of Network Protocols such as SSH, FTP, SCP, Telnet etc. In Windows it is used as SSH Client to connect to Your Linux server or for some other purpose But what will you do if you are on Mac? You might be thinking , Is there any Software like Putty for Mac Available? The answer is Yes! With the help of some other Software's we can Use putty on Mac although Putty is used widely on Windows Platform. Official Versions of Putty are available on Unix like Platforms, and now it's widely available for Mac systems running macOS 10.9.5 or higher.

(Q) I get this error when installing ( Error : LaunchServices: Could not store lsd-identifiers file at /private/var/db/lsd/com.apple.lsdschemes.plist ) is this a Putty error / bug?
(A) No, it's a Mac OS X bug :) See : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7270354?tstart=0

(Q) Can I install Putty on macOS 10.13 High Sierra?
(A) YES!

(Q) How do I expand the Putty window it is very small by default?



(A)  Unfortunately at this time, Putty for Mac does not support resizing an established connection.

What you can do is create another session for your application and set a custom Window size for it by changing the Columns and Rows and then save that for future usage of that application.

I know it is not optimal and hopefully we will be able to support resizing sometime in the future.


(Q) Can I install and run Putty on OSX 10.8.x 10.9.x and 10.10.x or 10.13 High Sierra?
(A) YES! please see this post about PuTTY running on OS X 10.10 and this post about PuTTY running on 10.13 High Sierra.

Putty for Mac running on OSX 10.9.5

(Q) I cannot enter the "#" character, the key combination is Alt-3 on macOS Sierra.
(A)  In Mac, Putty has additional options in Terminal Keyboard. Uncheck Option Key Acts as Meta.  Then Alt-3 should work. See the below screen-shot...

(Q) It is not possible to paste a target host address into a new connection.
(A) Use Command+V keyboard combination (the equivalent to CTRL+V) on macOS.

(Q) It's not obvious how to launch puttygen, pageant, plink etc.
(A) puttygen, pageant, plink etc are command line programs (this is the current putty limitation of mac).  So to access these programs you have to call for example:

/Applications/Putty4Mac/PuTTY.app/Contents/MacOS/puttygen

You can also place the programs in your PATH variable so that you can just call them from the command line. 

(Q)  Where are the support forums?
(A) Coming Soon!

(Q) Can I get a free trail version?
(A) Sorry but we don't have a trial version at this time, by our 9.0.0 release we plan to have a fully functional demo / trial version available.

(Q) Do you have any videos of Putty running on MacOS
(A) Yes, we posted two short videos of the Putty install and Putty running here.

(Q) What License is Putty for Mac released under?
(A) Putty for Mac is released under a commercial license. The Putty source code is distributed under the MIT license, which is similar in effect to the BSD license. The OS X kernel (darwin) is also released under the BSD license.

(Q) Do you have volume or educational discounts?
(A) Yes, we currently have volume discounts available that max out at 50% off the normal retail price, see this post for more details.

(Q) Do you have a standalone pTerm release?
(A) Yes, after a few request we did a standalone pTerm release it can be found here.

(Q) Where can I purchase Putty for Mac and how much does it cost?
