Rosetta Stone


I am switching my OS to Debian from Mint, soon, but have a question for a long time. Has anyone got or is using Rosetta Stone in Linux? I am wanting to install the Korean version. Does it work? Do I have to Wine it?

If you go to http://www.rosettastone.com/system-requirements, you'll see Windows and Mac mentioned.

No Linux.

Perfect, however, for VirtualBox with a winders guest...

Hope this helps some.

or just do this:

if you do not own a MS OS legal disk to install via VM, then this is a great option.

or try it in http://www.winehq.org/

It's definitely appropriate to buy a legitimate copy of Windows and to install it in a virtual machine in order to run a particular "killer app" that you want to use. (Or, what the heck, is there a Goodwill store or a used-computer store in your town or country? Is there anything forgotten in your own hall closet?)
