Legacy on a Mac..
We have 1,000’s
of Legacy users running Legacy on a MAC. With that said, currently Legacy is a Windows program.
We currently do
not have a “MAC” version of Legacy that will install without the aid of an
emulator or Windows installed. We hope to see a fully “MAC” compatible version
of Legacy in the future.
Current version of Legacy
and earlier versions will run on a newer Mac
with an Intel chip and Parallels, VirtualBox, VM Ware Fusion or Bootcamp installed along with
Legacy 7.5 and earlier
versions run well under WINE (http://www.winehq.org/) and CrossOver, which is the
supported version of WINE, without needing to install Windows.
Legacy will work with CrossOver, but it only has a bronze rating which means
there are some issues, for example the maps will not display. Legacy will also run with Parallels and Windows
installed but brings up an unrecognized media path message each time Legacy is
started, but once you click the error, it opens Legacy 8 just fine.

LINUX: Currently there is no version of Legacy for a Ubuntu/Linux system. This is something we may consider for the future. In the meantime, Legacy runs on Ubuntu/Linux with CrossOver software or VMWare or Sun's Virtual Box installed.
