CodeWeavers Announces Game Support in Crossover

Filed under
Software

CodeWeavers, Inc. today announced its development and product roadmap for CrossOver Office. With the debut of Version 5.0 next month and Version 6.0 later this year, CodeWeavers will enable increasing numbers of popular Windows applications, including games, utilities, and the most critical workplace applications, to operate cleanly on Linux desktops.

In addition, due to Apple Computer's recent announcement that it will be moving to Intel x86 chips for its Macintosh PC products next year, CodeWeavers looks forward to making CrossOver Office available for Windows-to-Mac application porting in 2006.

CodeWeavers is the primary corporate backer of The Wine Project, the well-known open source initiative to re-implement the Win32 API under Unix. CrossOver Office, built on Wine and packaged for enterprise and individual use, has made a significant impact on Linux desktop deployment for millions of users around the world.

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
