Bordeaux 75% off sale

The Bordeaux Technology Group is proud to announce a 75% off sale on Bordeaux for Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, PCBSD and OpenIndiana. With the new reduced price we hope more people will have the opportunity to use Bordeaux and Wineskin Pro to run their favorite Windows applications and Games.

Bordeaux for Linux , BSD , Mac and OpenIndiana will cost only $4.99 during this sale.The price of Wineskin Pro has also been reduced from the normal selling price of $29.95 to only $4.99!

About Wineskin Pro:
Wineskin is a tool used to make wrappers to run Windows software on Mac OS X. The wrappers are in the form of a normal Mac Application, which can be double clicked and ran just like its native. They can also be used to make a distributable port of software. You do not need the Windows program's source code, you can attempt to port any program you want.

With Wineskin Pro you will receive basic support for installing and configuring the Wineskin Application. We will also answer questions about installing engines and configuring wrappers, and in the near future provide custom engines that have been tested to work with today's most popular Games.

Unlike other solutions you can have multiple engines (Wine versions) installed at one time, so if your favorite game runs in that engine you don't have to worry about it breaking in a future Wine release.

About Bordeaux:
The Bordeaux Technology Group is a software services and development company specializing in Windows compatibility software. Users of Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris and Mac systems from time to time find themselves in the need to run specialized Windows software. The Bordeaux suite enables access to these programs and data in a seamless and low cost manner without requiring licensing of Microsoft Technology. The Bordeaux Group also provides migration services and support for alternative operating systems specializing in Windows compatibility.

There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. If you are vendor interested in supporting your application on Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris or Mac OS X or a software user that needs to run a Windows application on Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris or Mac OS X we can help.
