On Tuesday, Oct. 28, software company CodeWeavers will offer its products for no charge. CodeWeavers’ mission is to mission is to transform Mac OS X and Linux into Windows-compatible operating systems.”  

Several months ago, CodeWeavers CEO Jeremy White promised that if President Bush achieved one of his five lame duck goals– to improve the state of the nation by the end of his second term — White would offer his company’s products nongratis for one day.  

This week, through a fluke of global economic equilibrium – or astute presidential leadership, ahem – Bush met one of the goals; gas prices fell below $2.79 in the Twin Cities. White’s lame duck challenge page now reads “Goal achieved. My bad!” He will offer a Pro version of either one Mac or one Linux CodeWeavers software product for 24 hours starting midnight CST tonight. A  product upgrade and support package renewal will be available in one year for $35.
