Screen Shots

Font rendering is very important for Word documents. Fortunately CrossOver provides top notch font quality. In this screenshot you can see how a document would look with three types of font handling.
  • On the left you see what the document would look like with the standard X11 fonts typically used by X applications. Problems are numerous: fonts are gettting substituted, they are not anti-aliased, and they don't have exactly the right size which changes the document layout. Note that the layout had to be tweaked significantly to make the comparison possible.
  • In the center you see what the same document would look like in an application using the regular FreeType library with no hinting support as shipped by most Linux distributions. This already shows great progress: fonts are anti-aliased and the title uses the right font because Word installed it and CrossOver picked it up automatically. Also the text layout matches exactly the intended layout as can be seen, when comparing to the rightmost panel.
    But small fonts look bad because of the lack of hinting. Recent FreeType libraries include an auto-hinter that improves greatly on this but still gets the character spacing wrong in some cases.
  • The rightmost panel is how the document will look like when running Word in CrossOver. It is identical to the middle panel but regular text looks significantly better. This is because CrossOver ships with a FreeType library including Apple's patented hinting algorithms.
One of the strong points of CrossOver is the integration of the Windows applications with your Linux environment. So don't be surprised if clicking a URL in Word, opens that page in your favorite Linux browser, for instance Mozilla.

The reverse works too: ".doc" documents will open in Word. Of course this is configurable and can be disabled by going to the CrossOver Setup Associations panel.
