OK, this is totally off topic, but for all of us super-geeks, today is a very special day. CrossOver for Linux and Mac is being offered as a free download. Today only, you can go to CodeWeavers website and download a copy of their flagship products. It’s apparently not much more than a marketing ploy wrapped in a political statement, but hey, I can’t say no to free software. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, CrossOver is software that lets you run Windows applications on a Linux machine or a Mac. There are some free alternatives, but CodeWeavers is a commercial application, and it really seems to do a better job than most of it’s competitors. Especially since Linux has gotten mainstream enough that Target is offering a $300 laptop with Linux preinstalled, interoperability has become a very serious and important issue.
