Today you’ll find me writing at Dave Taylor’s excellent tech support blog, AskDaveTaylor.com. I’m evaluating CrossOver, a cross-platform utility that allows a user of one operating system to access programs designed for another. For me, Mac OS X is where I write and Windows is where I visit — CrossOver is the bridge.
And a pretty good bridge most of the time. But as with all software, CrossOver isn’t without its issues on my machine. Recent tests I’ve run suggest that the Gmail scripts I use to enhance Firefox may be giving Internet Explorer 6, and thereby CrossOver, a hairball. Either way, I grade the software as indispensable for the social writer who needs his Mac to play nicely with his client’s Windows network.
Read the full review at Dave’s blog, and be sure to keep an eye out for his post about writing film reviews. I’ll have it here next week. In the meantime, you can follow his cinematic coverage at this blog and via FilmBuzz on Twitter.
