May be, I didn't read it too properly but this link seems to say that the old versions work: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ication&iId=11

May be I am wrong, whatever..

Anisha, you are very correct about that one. The older 95 version has a gold rating, yet the version for XP seems to be rated very low.

And hello by the way

LOL Actually it is 9 in the morning for me right now. I go to bed normally between 5 and 6 AM but last night I wasn't feeling well, so I passed out at 1 AM.

You are right, I have been reading all the negative comments, But the "Debunking Wine myths" link supports your comments.

It is definitely worth a try

and the size is just 13.8 MB, which is not too much I think and they have dedicated forums too: http://forum.winehq.org/

Yeah ! Thank-you Anisha - that's a good site. May all your dreams be sweet

There is a copy (possibly an older one) of wine already here (from the Ubuntu install), I believe I have to get rid of that 1st. I was thinking of testing it out first - but (to my shame) I don't know how to make it run. I'm used to finding the 'exe' file - but I don't know what the linux equivalent is.

A search reveals 7 files inthe 'system files' folder

Any special reason for NOT browsing the Wine site? http://www.winehq.org/documentation

Browsing the site doesn't need any registration. Registration is required only if you want to POST there.
