One of the things that I've been using as an excuse to keep me from making progress on my personal genealogical research has been the inability to run my favorite genealogy software, RootsMagic, on my Macintosh. Oh, yes, I know that I can install Parallels Desktop for Mac or VMware Fusion, and then install Windows.
But I recently stumbled upon an easier solution: CrossOver Mac. By installing the Standard version ($39.95), I was then able to install and run RootsMagic 4 without a problem.
One less excuse for avoiding my personal genealogical research!
