    Well what do you want to do with it? You need to ask a better question.

    Are you a developer?

    Well for a start you need to license it, which requires you to pay a fee. So I doubt it is what you are looking for. A little bit of research on the Cider website would have told you all you need to know.

    You still have not stated if you are a developer or not. I'm guessing not.

    I'm pretty sure that Cider isn't for the typical consumer like you or me. Cider is for developers to use so that they can convert the applications that they've made to PC to run under OS X. Then they release a native OS X version (that they made with cider) and you buy it. I don't think you can simply use cider as a typical emulator.

    For example, the mac version of Command and Conquer 3 is a cider game... and that means that EA used Cider to port the game, and now you can go buy C&C 3 for mac. If you buy the PC version though, don't expect to be able to port it with Cider yourself.
