Which programs are you trying to run?

I have had some problems with wine myself, and I find the documentation and "good advice" offered lacking in many respects. But I want to tell you that things seem to improve. I have just compiled wine 0.9.24, and for the first time it now runs my favorite photo editor without a hitch. I believe it very much depends on what programs you are trying to run and the effort you put into it. Besides, what is the alternative? I have tried qemu, and I think it is not the right thing for my purposes - I would rather dual boot Windows as long as I can make a handful of frequently used programs run under wine. But this is obviously a very personal choice - we all have different needs. -- Tore _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
