Run Windows apps on M1 Macs – CrossOver 20.0.2 will (soon) bring support

CrossOver 20 was introduced a month ago. At the time it was said that Mac users could run Windows programs under Big Sur – but ARM support would have to be waited even longer. Now CodeWeavers followed suit and announced M1 support. This means that Windows software will now run on one of the new ARM Macs via CrossOver. Unlike virtualization environments like Parallels, CrossOver works without a Windows installation. The commercial version of the open source Wine project is much more limited and actually only serves to execute individual programs. However, if you are looking for it, you do not have to set up a different operating system on the computer – which would not be possible in the case of Windows on ARM Macs.
