    Ooo this looks good! I want to rebuild my laptop as Linux anyway and convert my Windows OS to a VM.

    Their website is a bit slow.

    Get CrossOver for FREE now! Here’s how:

    1. Sign up using the form below.
    2. Once the form is complete, we will provide you a link. You can then download CrossOver and use it immediately.
    3. Within the next week you will receive an e-mail from us. Clicking the unique link in that email will create a free 12-month support entitlement on our server. Your support entitlement will give you full access to support and updates for the next year.
    I have just downloaded the Mac version of CrossOver (crossover-11.3.1.zip).

    I can post up the linux ones (providing I can find a host) and someone else can post up the Mac one. Would that work?

    There wouldn't be any point in doing that because, (a) the demo version of CrossOver can easily be download through the CodeWeavers website and (b), it has to be activated using the details they send you in an e-mail which are unique to each user.

    Code:
    Mac
    http://media.codeweavers.com/pub/crossover/cxmac/demo/crossover-11.3.1.zip
    
    Linux

    The ones I downloaded on 31st don't appear to need to e registered, upon clicking "Register and Unlock this Demo" I get:

    This install of CrossOver Linux has already been registered by:

    CodeWeavers Flock the Vote Giveaway

    It is fully enabled. Thank you for your support!

    You're right actually. The Mac version I downloaded is pre-registered.
