All about wine

" If you really want that crap, most distributions have it in their repositories. The package manager will download and install it. Zorin has Wine pre-installed. "
Well no, I'd rather not use it, but I'll probably have to because there are some very unique programs for testing telescope optics and they just won't run in Linux at all. I'm preparing myself though. I bought a sata hard drive switch. I can run linux most of the time, shut down, press a button and restart in Windozzz Xpee (off line)
Also want to thank Eddy and Fred for their answers. :-)
