I've had many people ask when there was going to be a Mac version of Gemology Tools Professional. Well, that is not going to happen. But I have tested GT Pro on a laptop that is running Linux. If you load WINE onto a Mac it should run GT Pro. In my tests on my Linux laptop I loaded WINE and ran GT Pro. The good news is that almost everything ran flawlessly. I found only 3 minor problems (see list below).

WINE is free.
You DO NOT need a licensed copy of Windows.
Almost everything works normally (see Cons: below for items that do not work). All calculations have been found to be accurate.

No videos work. (Minor)
The photo viewers lose their Close button at times. Easy work arounds. (Minor)
The Glossary Find feature doesn’t scroll. (Minor)

PM me if you want more info.

Information is King.
