Codeweavers is offering free versions for Linux and Mac of Crossover Office for today. I've been using it for a while as a way to streamline WINE programs, and they made a challenge to the President, and are offering it today only. Check http://down.codeweavers.com anytime today to get a serial number and full-version download!

Yeah, they took down their entire site to set up the download page today. Wonder how long it'll take them to process all the serial numbers? I d/l the file, but am at work, and don't have a reason to install Crossover on our (Gentoo-based) file server, so it'll have to wait until I get home.

WIll this serial number be good for future releases, or does it only work with the download on that page?

No idea. They don't have that much info on the site, so I don't know exactly what they are doing.

the version you download is a full working version
you don't need a serial for that one
you need the serial for registering @codeweavers.com (when the page is up again)
to get support for free

Thanks. I will mess with that when I get home. Is there an ebuild in portage?

[EDIT]There is an old ebuild in portage. Looks pretty easy to bump to the current version[/EDIT]

Ebuilds for both crossover-office-pro-bin and crossover-games-bin are now in my overlay.

Or you can grab them at:
