I've just returned from the
Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
held in San Francisco last week. It was great fun - I enjoyed reconnecting with old friends,
and getting a handle on the current state of Linux.
It also marks an important point in our development as a company. That is, several years ago, when…
I've just spent the past 5 days in Nashville, Tennessee, bringing our chess club
to the SuperNationals chess tournament - the biggest scholastic chess tournament
of the year. This is my hobby - I discovered a few years ago that coaching kids
in chess was an enormous amount of fun - even more fun than playing it…
I am not the biggest fan of snow. I think every Christmas should have snow as there is nothing quite like a 'white Christmas' to warm the heart. Just thinking of a night slay ride through the woods with the snow gently falling, trees decorated in lights, and the fresh scent of pine and sugar cookies in the air…
Okay, so we've got our sales tax stuff all squared away (or so I hope; I'll find out
tomorrow during the audit). Now we're driving hard towards completing CrossOver 8.0.
We've done a ton of work that is going into CrossOver 8; we've got Internet Explorer 7 running,
and we're working on 8. We've got a huge number of…
I've been distracted this past week because I've been dealing
with a sales tax audit. It turns out to be a fascinating glimpse into some of
the collisions between a web-based business and the more traditional
Because our only significant office is here in Minnesota, we pay sales taxes only…
So I'm blessed with a wonderful wife. She helped support our efforts
around World of Warcraft by playing WoW with me (up until I got sick
of it at about level 40). Last summer, we decided we wanted to tackle
Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO). That is,
we wanted to bring the Windows version to Mac and Linux.…
pointed out that it has been 8 months since I had put out a road map.
So I thought I'd take some time to review what we've accomplished in these past 8 months,
and what we hope to accomplish through the rest of the year.
This has been an interesting 8 months. We've deliberately been working on…
I think BLOGS are interesting, pretty, funny, and nice. However, I never feel that I have enough witty comments to make reading a BLOG worthwhile. Don't get me wrong, I am rather cool (in my own mind). HOWEVER, I am also rather boring. I lead a normal life in the suburbs with a family and a…
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
