Yay !

just fancied posting to say how much I'm enjoying slack, the closest I've come to using nix is FreeBSD, but only in a server enviroment, never as my desktop/laptop OS, I had been a slave to B.Gates for far too long FREEDOM !

one quick question tho although I am enjoying the stability and speed of Slack, I do miss a couple of windoze programs (Dreamweaver mostly) and I have looked into wine for emulation, but does it require you to have a windows installation mounted ? if it does I'm going to have to go back and start again nevermind and how easy is it to get windoze programs running using it ?

cheers guys

Welcome to, phoeniXflame.

It has been done, certainly. You do need to mount your windows partition and if possible use vfat.

Many people here bemoan the lack of Dreamweaver for Linux. And Macromedia know this. And the ignore us. These things are set to test us.

In the mean time, have a lookie at Bluefish. Really rather good text editing / HTML authoring software.

For Kazaa, look for gnutella.
