Wine works well for me. I'm using most of the time just IE and from time to time Outlook when troubleshooting some customer's cases.

Interesting point that my usage of IE is gradually going down. For instance one of the Australian bank had a bug in their web server that's why I had to use IE before, now they fixed it, so I can just naturally running Firefox.

[QUOTE=Jaqui]Cedega, will run commercial windows games in linux.

[QUOTE]

Sorry, should've been more specific. I don't have a hope of running the games on Linux on my computer - would maybe need more RAM and certainly a more suitable graphics card.

Saying that the emulators weren't good enough for me was, in retrospect, an unfair statement. The truth is, my machine isn't good enough to run the emulators.

Well, Ajcham, Cedega works sometimes faster then Windows. Also - with Cedega you will have DX8 support in videocards that don't have hardware DX 7,8,9 support and sometimes they are abandoned by their creators, or they even doesn't exist on the market. Example - 3dfx voodoo's, S3 Savage, even S3 Virge, Matrox Millenium and other. Of course 3dfx videocards has a new 3rd party drivers - 3dfxzone.it, voodoofiles.com...
So, surprisingly, you can play some games better then on the some computer in dual boot windows...

VMware work well. A bit pricey though. Still, it gets my vote.

sorry-crossover office

im sorry-i am a origional and classic when it comes to linux (i like debian-not ubuntu-and i like open-source and gpl)
i love the wine project is one of the greatest projects ever.
it cant emulate to many applications.
i voted for crossover office b/c even though its not free-the developers have done tremendous work and thanks to them ITUNES CAN RUN ON LINUX

i dont have crossover-the only windows app i need is premiere (kino doesn't come EVEN CLOSE to cutting it)-in which case i boot into my small windows partition

If VMWare and QEMU are listed, shouldn't bochs be listed as well?

Peace...

Cedega, Not only is it useful for playing those games which havn't been converted yet, it also runs quite a few of those sometimes nessisary apps.

I tried installing the driver for my S3 Savage card, but it made a fuss about not having XFree86. I'll have to try and sort that out. Maybe there's a driver that works with Xorg.

What driver exactly?? For S3 you don't have any new driver!
You just have to run xorgconfigurator, then setup your xorg parameters, including video card, and everything is fine! Nothing more!

I know there are some accelerated Unichrome drivers somewhere.

It's not a new driver - it's an old unsupported one from S3's website, which I figured would be better than nothing, until I tried installing.

I'll try xorgconfigurator, see if it improves anything.

Apologies, Jeremy.
