Tom Wickline has written a short introduction on CrossOver Office for FreeBSD / PC-BSD.
Codeweavers, the company behind CrossOver, is according to their website, the leading corporate backer of the Wine Project. Wine is an open source software initiative that is systematically re-implementing the Win32 API under Unix. Wine makes it possible for PCs running Unix-based operating systems (like OS X and Linux) to run Windows application as if natively. CrossOver is comparible to Bordeaux.
CrossOver for FreeBSD is a commercial variant of Wine released by CodeWeavers with (currently) limited support for many of today’s most popular office application and games.
