CrossOver® 20 for macOS and Linux has arrived! Additionally, Chrome OS joins its cousins, macOS and Linux, in bringing a smooth Windows application experience with CrossOver 20.
Across All Platforms
CrossOver 20 includes Wine 5.0 (with over 3,400 improvements) and the ability to rate applications within the CrossOver UI.
The macOS version offers support for macOS 11, including Apple Silicon. The macOS version also includes major improvements to support for games, including 32 bit games that are no longer available for the Mac, DirectX11 and 12 games and the Steam client.
The Linux version undertook a thorough review of Linux distribution support, with an effort to integrate cleanly with all modern distributions and support for CrossOver to upgrade itself.
Our CrossOver Chrome OS product shares about 99% of its DNA with our CrossOver Linux product. Our initial Chrome OS product was built on Android, because Google provided support for Android applications. However, since then, Google has provided support for Linux applications. We feel that providing CrossOver using this route provides a superior user experience. Using Google’s Linux container support, CrossOver enables a Chromebook to run various Window applications as if they
were native and without requiring a Windows operating system. Not only does it integrate directly with the Chrome OS shelf, it also works in offline mode as well as it does in online mode.
It’s not just cosmetic...
Yes! We have a new look. The completely reimagined corporate branding and its sub-brands, CrossOverTM, PortJumpTM and ExecModeTM reveal the evolution of the company over the past 14 years, while maintaining our ongoing commitment to the open-source community and its talent.
