CodeWeavers Unveils CrossOver Office with Support For Quicken and Visio

8/12/2002 - CodeWeavers, a leading Windows®-to-UNIX® software developer, unveiled CrossOver Office® Version 1.2.0, the newest version of its breakthrough software solution. With Version 1.2, CodeWeavers is officially supporting both Intuit's Quicken and Microsoft Visio, in addition to the already-supported Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and IBM Lotus Notes. CrossOver Office, CodeWeavers' hugely popular software solution, allows Linux users to install and operate popular Windows software on their PCs without the Windows operating system. Also new to CrossOver Office 1.2 are a number usability enhancements designed to make the Windows application user experience smoother, faster, and more convenient.

"CrossOver Office has been a major success for CodeWeavers, underscoring the incredible demand for quality software to enable Windows applications to run on Linux and Unix," said Jeremy White, founder and president of CodeWeavers. "With Version 1.2, Linux users can now dependably run Quicken, the world's most popular personal finance software, at the click of a button." CrossOver Office 1.2 supports all versions of Intuit's Quicken personal finance package. CrossOver Office 1.2 also runs Visio 2000, Microsoft's business and technical diagramming application that produces flowcharts, timelines, and organizational charts to help companies visualize ideas, information, and systems.

In addition to the announcement of support for Quicken and Visio, the firm has also expanded its "Honorable Mentions" category of applications — software packages that are known to run under CrossOver Office, but are not yet officially supported. Prominent among these packages is Intuit's popular QuickBooks® software, a leading small business finance package. According to White, full support for QuickBooks will be forthcoming in the near future. "We're excited at the prospect of supporting Intuit's full line of personal and small-business applications, as we think this will significantly expand the appeal of the Linux desktop in the computing marketplace."
