The screenshot on the right is QIRX running natively on my Mac Mini to listen to DAB+ radio from a remote Raspberry Pi based RTL-SDR.
Most modern open source software is available in versions that run on macOS, Linux and Windows but from time to time there is a great (or necessary) piece of software that only runs on Windows. Thankfully there are a few solutions that allow running such software on macOS (and many of these solutions are also applicable for Linux & BSD users).
So, what's the alternative? There is an amazing project called WINE that can often do the job. On the Mac in particular there is a paid product called Crossover that is basically WINE with some additional optimisations and tools, although underneath it's just WINE. The benefit of going with Crossover is that it includes paid support which can help guide you in the right direction when an app doesn't work well in WINE (this can happen with some custom hardware or dongles). There is also a crowdsourced database of applications that are known to work (or not work) in Crossover. For example, here is the entry I made for QIRX: https://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/crossover/qirx-317.
Benefits of using Crossover/Wine:
A full tutorial on how to use WINE is beyond the scope of this article, but I have written a step-by-step tutorial for QIRX. There are tons of other places to learn more about it, just Google. While I do use VMs sometimes, my first port of call is always to try WINE first since it's the quickest and most lightweight way of getting started.
