As part of the company’s Lame Duck Presidential Challenge Codeweavers will be giving away free copies of their CrossOver virtual machine software for download for 24 hours today (28th Oct). Just head over to their site and get the code. Each copy (worth around $50.00 or so) comes with full support. Mac and Linux heads will now be able to run Windows games or applications on their computers while watching the financial meltdown unfolding through the slatted blinds on their basement gratings. Joy! Funny-tragic press release.
In July, CodeWeavers – whose software lets Mac OS X and Linux users run Windows programs without having to Microsoft for a Windows OS license – launched the Great American Lame Duck Presidential Challenge (lameduck.codeweavers.com) to encourage President Bush to make the most of his remaining days in office by accomplishing a major economic or political goal by January 20, 2009…On Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008, any one visiting the CodeWeavers’ Web site (www.codeweavers.com) will be given a deal code that will entitle them to one free copy of CodeWeavers’ award-winning CrossOver software. Each copy comes complete with support.
