[REBOL] Re: Lindows...

Hi Joanna, On Tuesday, June 18, 2002, 4:57:50 PM, you wrote: JK> What I have understood, they have tried to make this emulation as invisible JK> as possible so that end user needs not to tweak Linux details to run those Actually this just needs including a proper Wine configuration or configurator. Just to give an example, I tried running WinZip from my rather standard RedHat 7.2 configuration after setting up Wine's config file, and it succesfully ran, even placing an icon on GNOME's desktop (exactly like it does on Windows). So again, I don't see it as something that shaking... but this does not mean they will not succeed: they are actually marketing it, while no one is doing it in the same area (i.e. neither RedHat nor Mandrake are saying that their Linux distros are in any way compatible with some Windows software, at least not in such big letters :), and they are probably contributing to Wine's source to make it run more and more applications...
