The old version was only $25 AFIK. The CD price is outragious too, an extra $10 plus shipping and handling. I’m doing pretty much everything that crossover does natively. Mplayer plugin is finally working for me, and i’ve got acroread, flash, real player…what else could I need? Great product, but I think they’re getting a little bit to confident in the fact that most people can’t figure out how to install native plugins. 2003-08-07 4:19 pm VRML support! Just what I needed… in 1997! Actually bravo to them for adding support for so many things, and integrating it so well with popular linux browsers 2003-08-07 7:29 pm 2003-08-07 7:48 pm Try the Linux emulation mode…it’s not perfect, but I bet with a little tweeking you could make it work. If you wait a couple weeks, I bet there’ll be a port for it available. Then it’ll be an easy install. There are a lot of things that don’t “officially” run on FreeBSD that work beautifully through emulation, the Java SDKs being a great example, as well as Oracle, and Netscape Navigator. 2003-08-07 9:25 pm remarkable that it’s not on kazaa or anything. goes to show that open sourcers respect the efforts of projects like this. i check every now and then, and I’m always happy when I don’t find it…..and I never have. 2003-08-07 9:51 pm This version finally does what it says and manages to install quicktime, I must have tried to install it a hundred times in the earlier version but it never worked so thumbs up for that. Only thing is, I cant get windows media player to install with this version, but it worked fine in the earlier one Not a big problem, as the two versions can live side by side, so everything is working, but it would be nice if everything did install as they are meant too. Good work anyway, hope the remaining problems get ironed out soon. 2003-08-08 1:52 am remarkable that it’s not on kazaa or anything. goes to show that open sourcers respect the efforts of projects like this. Try alt.binaries.warez.linux – if it’s not there yet, it will be soon. BTW: This isn’t even open source is it ? 2003-08-08 9:41 am I have found it using Shareaza, but only the once. I think it was version 1.0, but like most people I just don’t think it would be right to download and use it. Codeweavers seems to be a company with a high ethical standard (if that isn’t an oxymoron), and I have a lot of respect for their honesty about their products. I suppose this respect would not let me cheat them either. It’s only fair. Having said that, I wouldn’t buy it as I find I can do all my work using just Linux with the exception of games for which I boot back into Win98 (with all its crashes and freezes etc). 2003-08-08 2:52 pm The only reason you don’t find it on Kazaa is because there just aren’t that many people that use proprietary software on Linux. Hence, there isn’t much piracy on Linux. Not to mention the very small numbers of people that actually use Linux. It’s hard to find Mac OS X stuff on Kazaa too. 2003-08-08 4:27 pm Does it mean Mac is hardly used? 2003-08-08 6:02 pm Try eMule, it doesn’t take you long to find _any_ version of Crossover plugin there. 2003-08-11 8:17 pm The version I bought was $20 way back when (just checked), there’s no way I’m paying $35, fortunately the crossover plugin 1.2.1 still works great. I wonder if anyone’s going to try an open source version of this….
