About MoveOver

MoveOver is developed with one key goal in mind: to take the pain out of Windows to Linux Desktop migration. “Many people are increasingly realizing the value of Linux in achieving cost savings, security and performance. However, for a new Linux user, the manual migration process is always time consuming and challenging. MoveOver therefore is a compelling solution as it greatly eases the migration process for new Linux users,†said Mr. Yap Boon Leong, business development director of Resolvo Systems.

MoveOver comes with a user-friendly, wizard-driven interface to migrate various Windows environments, including documents, e-mail messages & settings from Outlook or Outlook Express, wallpaper, cookies, Internet bookmarks and other user-specific preferences, to major Linux desktop distributions. Installation is quick and fuss-free, and the best part is, users do not require any Linux know-how in order to make the switch.

MoveOver offers the following benefits:

1) 2-Step Migration
MoveOver is a self-explanatory wizard based program that is intuitively easy to use. In two simple steps, your new Linux desktop will look and feel like your Windows machine.

2) Save up to 90% of your time
No more spending long hours manually migrating to Linux. MoveOver reduces up to 90 percent of the time it takes to manually migrate to a Linux desktop.

3) No Gurus Required
