I just discovered this great opportunity thanks to a colleague of mine, and i want to share this information with all of you.
Just for 24 hours it’s possible to get Crossover Linux and 1 year of support for free.
What’s Crossover Linux ?
CrossOver (a.k.a. CrossOver Office before version 6.0) is the collective name for two commercial and proprietary programs developed by CodeWeavers that allow many Windows-based applications to run on Linux and Mac OS X using a compatibility layer. The programs include CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux.
The programs are modified, proprietary versions of the public Wine source tree with various compatibility patches added, more user-friendly configuration tools, and commercial support. CodeWeavers employs several Wine developers and contributes code back to the free software/open-source software Wine project as per the GNU LGPL, although CrossOver is proprietary software.
Crossover for Linux supports a great number of programs and games for Windows, so this is a great opportunity to run that particular Windows software that you really want to use on your Linux Box, and for free !
