Front Page 2003 - cool software. LOL

Try and the Crossover website to see what works and what won't - if your "cool" software isn't listed, it hasn't been tested.

And, please please please please, use better thread titles - ones with information about your thread would be nice.

Wow.. with that list.. might as well just keep using Windows.. unless your willing to find other cool alternative software that runs on Linux..

Or you could spend lots of time trying to configure them all to work using wine or maybe buy crossover office, etc. Or just get vmware to load the whole Windows OS in Linux to run them.. etc.
