SAINT PAUL, Minn (December 12, 2016) — CodeWeavers, Inc., developer of CrossOver—the easiest, fastest way to run Windows software on Mac and Linux—announced today the release of CrossOver 16. With CrossOver 16, you can run thousands of Windows software titles, without the need for a Windows OS license.
