Windows(R)-to-Linux(R) software developer, was honored at LinuxWorld 2002
Conference & Expo with the 'Best Desktop Office Solution' award for its
CrossOver Office product, which allows Linux users to install and operate a
number of popular Windows software on their PCs without the Windows operating
CodeWeavers' award, one of ten Open Source Product Excellence Awards
given this week at LinuxWorld by IDG World Expo in conjunction with the
UniForum Association, recognizes Open Source product and service innovations
offered by LinuxWorld exhibitors. In receiving its award, CodeWeavers joined
such world-class companies as Computer Associates, Hewlett Packard and IBM,
all of whom were honored at the presentation.
A highly successful product in the marketplace, CrossOver Office enables
Linux PC users to run Microsoft(R) Office, Outlook, and Internet Explorer, as
well as Lotus Notes(R) and other leading applications. CodeWeavers debuted
two versions of CrossOver Office at LinuxWorld 2002-CrossOver Office Version
1.2, which supports Intuit(R) Quicken(R) and Visio(R) 2000; and CrossOver
Office 1.2 Server Edition, which allows enterprises to run all supported

"Our panel of expert judges recognized products and manufacturers that
demonstrated exceptional merit, not simply market dominance," said Rob
Scheschareg, vice president of sales, marketing and product development for
IDG World Expo, producer of LinuxWorld Conference & Expo/San Francisco 2002.
"In giving CrossOver Office the winning spot in the 'Best Desktop Office
Solution' category, the judges noted the product's high degree of performance
and customer value."
"CodeWeavers is extremely honored to receive this Open Source Product
Excellence Award for CrossOver Office," said Jeremy White, founder and
president of CodeWeavers. "Such recognition proves that CrossOver Office is a
unique product that gives both enterprise-level and individual Linux users
access to the most-used business and productivity applications in the world."
CrossOver Office has changed the application landscape for Linux and Unix
users by eliminating the tedious and expensive licensing requirements
necessary to run popular Windows applications. Before CrossOver Office, users
who wanted to run Windows apps on their Linux or Unix PCs had to install a Sun
PCI card or other Windows emulator, followed by a licensed copy of Microsoft
Windows and then the desired application. With CrossOver Office, by contrast,
individuals can operate Windows applications "as-if natively" from their
distribution CDs in an automatic, plug-and-play manner.
