Applications are integrated into the operating system: run them as usual Linux software. Reboot and start the virtual machine - not required, and does not need a Windows license.
Even the most die-hard Linux users sometimes need to run Windows software once in a while. Some keep an old Windows PC around, some dual-boot, some use a virtual machine, while others have discovered the power of CrossOver Linux. CrossOver enables you to run the Windows programs you need on your favorite Linux distro like Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, RHEL and more.
The developers of the program claim:
Not only does CrossOver Linux run productivity and utility software all in one application, it also runs games. Without the overhead of a virtual machine, games can run as fast or faster than they would under a Windows operating system.
CrossOver is not free. But believe me it's worth it. Personally, I bought and have no regrets. Met it on different torrent trackers. But I think it is better to buy license and get the newest updates.
To buy the CrossOver for Linux you can on the official website.
Then go to download and download needed DEB version. Install and enjoy. In addition you are free to test the program exactly 2 weeks.
Good Luck!!!Edited by Shekin - 9-12-2015, 08:13
