Some perspective about CrossOver: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_(software)#CrossOver CrossOver is a contributor to the Wine (WINE) open source project. As such, their actual Wine code is incorporated into Wine software, which of course is accessible for free. You can also access CrossOver code via their free contribution to the Darwine open source project. When BUYING CrossOver, what you're getting, in addition to Wine, is their added GUI and other ease-of-use code that makes it significantly easier and more enjoyable to use than straight Wine. The money you pay to CrossOver goes into their further development contributions to the Wine project as well as updating their ease-of-use code. It's important to note that Wine is VERY limited in what Windows software it is able to run, despite how promising it sounds when you read about it. This is particularly true of games, which tend to be what Mac users would like to access from the Windows environment. With time, this has become a more prominent limitation of Wine thanks to Microsoft managing to push proprietary APIs to their Windows game developers, resulting in them NOT being available to incorporate into Wine. DirectX is of particular annoyance. Even virtualization systems are unable to provide contemporary DirectX 11 or 12 support. This has been the case for many years. DirectX 10 is now relatively antiquated. There is some glint of promise in Wine version 4.0 in that it provides some support of DirectX 11 code. With time and testing we'll find out how well it works. Wine 4.0 is of course incorporated into the most current version of CrossOver.

Quite clunky. Just because an app works once is no guarantee it'll work a second time. With every startup there's some new issue. I've no doubt some will find this useful, but it probably makes sense for most others to just go the bootcamp route. . make sure you test comprehensively because they absolutely do not do refunds.

Uninstalling because none of the applications for windows open I can install but attempting to open just crashes out the window app I am trying to open.

5 stars IF it is 64 bit compatible. But it is not! With a brand new version and I get a "this app is not optimized" message from OSX Mojave? Really? Heading into 2019 soon I think they could have gone ahead and made this app fully 64. geeze!

Tried running Forte Agent with it and it would not connect to the network while Forte did fine on Windows 7 in a VM. Bought a promotion from 3rd party site and it can't be upgraded. They want more money even though the version I bought didn't work. Now I installed Python 2.7.15 from the python.org site and it totally breaks Crossover. Support says Reinstall the OS. Glad I didn't give them any more money. This goes straight into the trash. A waste of my money.

It's ok. It works well enough, but with MS Office and Acrobat Pro, it is slow and clunky. These are the latest versions, too - and there are bizarre graphics issues such as lines and jagged triangle-like shapes that bisect the screen. And there is significant lag associated with kernel_task spiking whenever CrossOver is running.

I bought CrossOver in a promotion and found out that it was a one-time license. Now, four weeks later, there is an update that I can't install because I need a 1 year license or a lifetime license to install the update. In my opinion this is fraud, because the current update mainly fixes bugs. I'm not gonna back this subscription crap. Codeweaver, you lost me as a customer! By the way, it is advertised that Office 2016 works with v17. But it doesn't! CrossOver crashes, freezes, slows down the computer....
