CodeWeavers, the team behind CrossOver shared that they were able to run CrossOver on Big Sur 11.1. Crossover works by translating Windows commands into Mac commands so that you can run Windows software as if it were designed native to Mac.

However, it now turns out that it is possible to run Windows software on the M1 Macs, following a demonstration of CrossOver 20 by the product's maker CodeWeavers, reported by 9to5Mac.

Apple also has a featured story on the Mac App Store that highlights numerous fully M1 compatible apps that are already available as well - those that have been released as universal apps with native M1 support. These new Apple Silicons Macs are capable of running all existing Mac apps thanks to Apple's new Rosetta 2 emulator, though app developers are invited to recompile their apps for the new ARM version of macOS Big Sur. "After we did that, we were able to fire up CrossOver and install and run a wide range of Windows applications", said the blog post of CodeWeavers, developers behind CrossOver 20.

Apple has just released its first MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros, and Mac Minis powered by the company's own M1 chips, which provide much better performance per watt compared to Intel-based Macs. They confirmed that apps like Quicken, and games like Among Us and Team Fortress 2 worked as expected. This was all tested on the cheapest Apple Silicon laptop you can buy, the $999 MacBook Air with 8GB of RAM. However, CrossOver hasn't been updated for Apple's M1 chips yet, meaning it's having to run through the Rosetta 2 translation layer to work.

CrossOver is based on the open-source project WINE and emulates Intel Windows binaries via Rosetta 2 on the ARM Mac.
