As a longtime user of Codeweavers Crossover Office (I started out when they released Plugin and wanted to help fund the Wine effort through their work) I can confirm that I am able to download Crossover Office as:

  • An RPM
  • A DEB
  • A .sh Loki installer that doesn't need root privs for a user to install into their own space

That plus the fact that their license says:

This is a license for one user. The license is not necessarily for a specific user, or a specific computer, but it is for one person at a time.

is a nice change in a world of product activation and DRM..

cheers,
Chris

Sounds great! I'll have to try it sometime; I have enough Windows users in my house...

How does it do on tax software, specifically TaxCut?
