Psst! Get Crossover Office or Crossover Games Today. FREE!

Remember when I reviewed Crossover Games (cxgames) back in April? If you have been pining for your very own license ever since -- today is your lucky day.

The folks over at CodeWeavers are giving away their products today. No strings attached. Free. Well, free as in beer, and partially free as in speech. If you recall, CodeWeavers uses the Wine project to allow Windows programs to function under a Linux environment. They are the largest contributor to the open source Wine project, and today, they're contributing their commercial product to YOU.

Go there now! It's today only, October 28th, 2008. I'm not sure what timezone they're based in, so be sure to go as quickly as you can!

UPDATE: Justin Ryan let me know Codeweavers is in the Central timezone. The deal ends at 23:59 CST. Go now!!!


Shawn is Associate Editor here at Linux Journal, and has been around Linux since the beginning. He has a passion for open source, and he loves to teach. He also drinks too much coffee, which often shows in his writing.

Yup yup, got it. Though I found out due to the wine mailing list - thank goodness I read it that day. Just the ticket...

Though I still wonder how well it will run any of the Visual Studio Express IDEs? Who knows.

Too late

BEAST runs just fine under DOSBox.
