Back in July, Codeweavers came up with the Lame Duck Presidential Challenge which basically said they would give away a free copy of Crossover if any of five challeges were met. It took the destruction of the US economy and a mass panic by futures traders selling off everything in order to make margin calls, but gas prices dropped low enough to do the trick. If you stop by their website on the 28th, you can get a code for the free software.

Taco Bell will also give you a free taco on the 28th because someone stole a base during the World Series. I honestly wasn't aware that the World Series was going on at the moment, but hey... free taco-like substance!

Cheers for the info. Crossover Plugin was one of the two† pieces of software I have ever bought for Linux. Back in the day, the ability to easily play QuickTime on Linux was pretty tricky, and nearly impossible to do inside a browser window...but they did it and did it well. I look forward to picking up a copy of CrossOver for Mac tomorrow.

† The other was VMware, which still continues to be absolutely incredible. This time around, I got my employer to buy me a copy, though. [Smile]

I just saved my copy of CrossOver, for when I get my PC done with Ubuntu [Big Grin] I've found Wine doing a great job on some little Windows applications I use, so I believe CrossOver will do awesomely.

I've got my copy - just waiting for my activation e-mail.

As it happens, I don't think I need it for any of the supported applications, but there are a couple of unsupported apps I want to try. Even if i can't make use of it now, free stuff is good - yes? [Smile]

Free stuff is almost always good. Even free taco bell tacos are good... for very small values of "good"

(and yes, I did go get a free taco, but mostly because my lunch got delayed until 3pm and I thought "why not")
