CodeWeavers, Lycoris™ Team Up To Bring Native Quicken, Lotus Notes Support To Linux Desktop
CodeWeavers CrossOver Office™ Now Bundled With Lycoris Desktop/LX™; New Desktop/LX Capability Includes Support for Many Other Windows Apps/Plug-ins
ST. PAUL, MN and MAPLE VALLEY, WA - June 16, 2004 - CodeWeavers, Inc., the leading Windows-to-Linux software developer, and Lycoris today announced a partnership aimed at giving computer users a powerful new reason to switch to the Linux operating environment.
As part of today’s announcement, Lycoris will also begin selling CrossOver Office as a standalone product to the public via all Lycoris wholesale and retail outlets as well as its Lycoris store. CrossOver Office, priced at $39.95, will also be available beginning in early July.
“Millions of people around the world are looking for reasons to switch to a Linux desktop operating system. Being able to run common Windows applications natively in Linux is one of the most prominent,” said Rus Bayne, Vice President of Sales for Lycoris. “Bundling CrossOver Office with Desktop/LX is an incredible combination of solutions that will greatly accelerate the migration from Windows to the more reliable and robust Linux computing platform-especially now that both will be available at a discounted price.”
“CrossOver Office provides support for the everyday applications most people use most often,” said Jeremy White, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CodeWeavers, Inc. “By joining Desktop/LX and CrossOver Office, average computer users will be able to translate away from Windows, while also saving money using Windows applications they already own and know how to use.”
