How do i install windows live essentials 2011 on Lucid Puppy 5.1
 
Hi, i just got this used computer with Lucid Puppy 5.1 on it, it is an old IBM desktop from way back. Anyway i want to install Windows Live Essentials or at least some kind of MSN on it for IM chat. Is this possible ? You may email me at gotbad@hotmail.co.uk or write back to me here.

Thanks !! :)

I believe puppy Linux uses Pidgin.

And Pidgin speaks all major protocols, including MSN:

windoze live essentials won't work with Linux M$N again is windoze.You may be able to run these in wine but I kind of doubt it.

You can read through THIS THREAD to install and run Pidgen in Puppy.
