/"Run popular office productivity software, such as Microsoft Office, 
Photoshop, and Lotus Notes, in Linux, without any Microsoft OS license 
costs."
/

/"CrossOver Linux allows you to install many popular Windows 
productivity applications, plugins and games in Linux, without needing a 
Microsoft Operating System license. CrossOver includes an easy to use, 
single click interface, which makes installing a Windows application 
simple and fast. Once installed, your application integrate seamlessly 
with your Gnome or KDE environment. Just click and run your application, 
exactly as you would in Windows, but with the full freedom of Linux. /

/*CrossOver Linux lets you use many Windows plugins directly from your 
Linux browser. Plugins work on any x86 based Linux distribution* and 
will integrate with most browsers including Firefox 1.x, Netscape 6.x, 
Konqueror, Mozilla, and Opera. CrossOver also integrates with Gnome and 
KDE to let you transparently open any Word, Excel or PowerPoint file. 
But even better, you can open these attachment types directly from any 
mail client."/
