Lina said its dual-licensed Lina virtual Linux machine will run more or less normal Linux applications under Windows, Mac, or Linux, with a look and feel native to each."

Gotta agree with you. After those 14 years Wine still doesn't make for much more than a curiosity. I mean, what is the fun of running apps on a reverse engineered implementation of an already bogus platform..?

I don't mean to come down on all the hard and good work of the Wine team, but for me it's just not working and believe me I've tried.

Try running crossover office, if you can't make wine work for you. The Crossover office folks take care of a lot of small details to make sure that the packaging and installation of both wine and of windows applications on Linux is easy and more reliable.

I wish that were true for me, but I too have pretty much given up both on Wine and on CXOffice. Both used to support my Studio MX (2002) apps very nicely, but both have since gone to pot.

I still use Fireworks MX and Freehand MX from time to time, but Dreamweaver (which is really what I bought the damn suite for) is dead to me now. Never mind, I actually think I like Quanta Plus better now ;)
