CrossOver is a Microsoft Windows compatibility layer available for macOS and Linux. This compatibility layer enables many Windows-based applications to run on macOS or Linux operating systems.

CrossOver is developed by CodeWeavers and based on Wine, an open-source Windows emulator. CodeWeavers modifies the Wine source code, applies compatibility patches, adds configuration tools that are more user-friendly, automated installation scripts, and provides technical support. All changes made to the Wine source code are covered by the LGPL and publicly available.
