I see that some linux users say they run this windows program with wine, but alot of the programs I try didn't work??? Why???
How can I run the windows programs with wine????
thanks a lot???
I want to use MS PowerPoint ( I don't want that, but my little brother didn't love OpenOffice, He is accustomed to PowerPoint),
I don't prefer that but for my brother,
also just a question , could we use Encarta ? what do we need ??
Encarta has interactive animations and sound.
Programs which are run by wine usually control their size themselves. Don't know if all but my quicktime player does. And look here: http://www.codeweavers.com/ if you really need powerpoint and do not want to play with wine. You can also run powerpoint with wine, but configuring it so requires more efforts.
[QUOTE=Alien_Hominid] You can also run powerpoint with wine, but configuring it so requires more efforts.
what kind of Configuration do I need? I can have some time with this, but what does it require??? I also want to learn how to run things with wine as a hobby.
I think you are right about Encarta and Wikipedia, but we still have a problem with the Internet cost , I hope that I could get ADSL at that time but I am not sure about that.
thanks alot for you response.
