Wine Improvement, Now Runs e-sword!

Hi, I use Linux Mint 5 Elyssa. It is my best Linux experience. I tried Wine about 10 months back, and it could not run a windows free ware program called e-sword, but this April 09 the new Wine does. I use e-sword 7.0. Very popular Christian program.

It works running e-sword very well, almost perfect, set in my case in windows 98 mode.

All fonts, pop ups, translations, cut and paste... work fine, no crashes.

I needed this since gnome sword only runs an Arabic Bible and is less feature rich at best.

Very good work to the fellows who make Wine!

Wine is constantly improving. That's for sure.

I don't know, mine has English, German, French and German bibles. Or rather, those are the only ones I have cared to install, there are many, many more available. Not to mention the numerous commentaries, dictionaries, etc.
