It is possible to turn the Windows B2020 app into a pseudo-native mac app using Wineskin, which is the way UBC distributes the Mac version of Beyond 20/20:

This has the advantage of not requiring drive partitioning or a full installation of a target OS. Using a similar technique, you can get B2020 to run on linux OSs.

You also don't technically need wineskin; you can just have a local installation of WINE and run it that way.
