Each year, my family vacations in beautiful
Door County, Wisconsin. In fact, my wife has been there every year but one of her life. It's a great vacation; we stay at a fantastic timeshare that my wife's parents own.
One year - the first time we took our older son there - we had what we refer to as "the vacation from…
You see, we had this FaceBook Profile a long, long time ago. But, instead of being set up as a page, it was set up as a user. At some point in time someone (probably FaceBook) decided that users must be real people and not entities, who knew? This was about one week after I took over the realm of the…
There are many frustrations running a small business. You don't have an army of accountants to deal with
oddball tax problems
. You don't have a large marketing department to run expensive ads on national TV. Your embezzlement choices are paper clips or pens, not millions of dollars in golden parachutes.

I am very happy to report that we've
shipped CrossOver Mac 8.0 and CrossOver Linux 8.0.

I've been in the business of trying to make Open Source
into a business for about 10 years now. It's a long and hard process and I'm sometimes prone
to bitterness and cynicism about it all, particularly when people
just don't get it.
But I've recently read Bill Vass's blog about
Open Source and our…
We've been making good progress towards CrossOver 8.0. In fact, we are feeling confident
enough about our progress that we put out a
of the first beta. We've done this mostly for our customers that use Quicken 2006. This way,
they can upgrade to Quicken 2009 before the support for Quicken 2006…
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.
