Anyone here using Crossover to run v.6?

Right now I have v.5 on my PC desktop with no internet connection. I've been trying to hold out for the Mac version before installing on my MacBook Pro, but I'd also like to use the online features of RM.
If you've had actual experience using RM with Crossover, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

I stuck with Parallels because it had no problems that I have found. Each of the others had problems which caused me to dislike using them. These problems could have been my own making but still I had no problems with Parallels. I am using version 7 of parallels, windows 7, and crome browser. I plan to go to version 8 of parallels when I find a good deal.
One thing that makes a big difference in the speed is how you layout the disk. I put the main database for RM5/6 on the windows virtual c drive. When I exit RM I always save a copy to the Mac side. This is then picked up with time machine for auto backup and also sugar sync for backup.
I don't backup the windows virtual machine because I can reload if necessary. I also run a virus scan on the windows side although I only visit genealogy sites and run RM on the windows side.

What was it about the Crossover installation that left you dissatisfied?

WineSkin works better though....less lockups.
