Offers all software at price corresponding to day of the month: $15 on May 15, $16 on May 16, etc.
SAINT PAUL, Minn. (May 12, 2011) CodeWeavers, Inc., which provides the celebrated CrossOver software enabling Mac and Linux users to run Windows software on their computers without the need of a Microsoft license, this week marks its 15th birthday by releasing its birther video and offering its new CrossOver Bundle product at a price that corresponds with the day of the month.
Star-crossed hook-up at mega mall
As the birther video reveals, CodeWeavers was founded by CEO Jeremy White after witnessing the inception of a fiery romance between a Mac user and a PC devotee who met on a random Tuesday afternoon at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. With that passion—and seed capital White earned in a lawsuit he settled out of court after being rear-ended on I-35W by an over-caffeinated campaign volunteer for H. Ross Perot’s ill-fated ‘96 presidential campaign—the product known as CrossOver came to be.

“I’m incredibly proud of CrossOver, which has grown into a bright-eyed teenager,” said White as he sat at his desk attempting to dry his tears off the birthday card he was signing for his software. “Sure, he’s had his meltdowns and occasionally he’s done things I had no idea he could do. But, through it all he’s been a trusty alternative for individuals who want to run Windows applications on their computer without the drudgery and expense of buying a Microsoft license.

“So, to celebrate CodeWeavers birthday, we are rolling out our new CrossOver Bundle product—which contains both our CrossOver and CrossOver Games products in one neat package. And we’re offering it in a pricing structure that is not only incredibly affordable but also mind-bogglingly confusing.”

CrossOver price to correspond with day of month
Beginning May 15 and continuing through May 31, individuals can download the new CodeWeavers Bundle product at a price that corresponds with the day of the month. Normally a $49.95 value, individuals can buy the software for $15 on May 15, $16 on May 16, $17 on May 17, and onward through May 31. Full details can be found here.

Special $15,000 Platinum Edition includes free shirt, book and more
Additionally, from May 15 through May 31, individuals can purchase a truly exclusive CodeWeavers Platinum Edition version of the software for $15,000. For this reasonable price, individuals receive:
  • One copy of CrossOver Bundle
  • Lifetime tech support from the customer’s own personalized “Support Ninja”
  • Round trip airfare (coach class) from anywhere on the planet to CodeWeavers’ Global Headquarters in the sprawling megalopolis of St. Paul, MN.
  • Three night’s stay at a Day’s Inn, mere blocks from aforementioned Global Headquarters
  • Dinner with Jeremy White at Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge, a Minneapolis tiki bar as seen on TV
  • Free general admission ticket to a Saint Paul Saints baseball game (assuming they’re playing when you’re here)
  • Autographed 8x10 photo of Jeremy White
  • 1-Day unpaid internship in the CodeWeavers department of your choice.
  • A wolf moon shirt at one size smaller than your regular size
  • Your very own copy of How to Avoid Huge Ships
