Run your Windows® app on MacOS, Linux, or ChromeOS

CrossOver® Mac

Do you like buying Windows® licenses? You do? Great. You do you. For the rest of humanity, CrossOver is the easiest way to run many Microsoft applications on your Mac without a clunky Windows emulator. (Seriously, have you tried emulators? Do you like how they run on your Mac?) CrossOver works differently. It's not an emulator. It does the work of translating Windows commands into Mac commands so that you can run Windows software as if it were designed native to Mac.

CrossOver works with all kinds of software - productivity software, utility programs, and games - all with one application.

Faster. Better experience. No license. Simple as that.

"I just wanted to say WOW! I found myself looking back to the desktop a couple of times to verify that I was indeed still running Linux!"

   - Marty S.
"I was considering purchasing a copy of XP and Parallels for use with bootcamp in the Leopard OS. That was very costly and much too painful as a solution. I came across Crossover for Mac and installed it, and my work application worked like a charm!"

   - Passion
"I honestly want to thank you guys for the amazing software you've developed. I own an iMac which I love dearly, only problem is that I've always had to use bootcamp to play Guild Wars, which on Windows 7, does not work amazingly well, especially considering the sound drivers had issues. I just installed Guild Wars using CrossOver Games and it works amazingly, I did my research and found tons of people complaining that the game didn't full screen properly, that confused me since it went into full screen with no borders or title bars or anything, the graphics look great and the connection works perfectly."
