Hi Josh,
Well, on the Linux side Orca doesn't always work perfectly with the interpreters, but something like yasr or brailletty can handle them just fine. For z machine style games the classic frotz works well. If you are looking for a Linux adrift interpreter I recommend a program called scare. If you want a tads interpreter for Linux my bet is on frobtads. As I said all of these are accessible if you use speakup, yasr, or brailletty and are a bit difficult with Orca, but I haven't tested against a recent build of Orca though.

Hey all,

What interactive fiction interpretors are you WIndows and Linux users using these days? For Linux, we're talking something that works well with Orca. With Windows, something that just works well. Something that works well with ZMachine games and their derived formats, like Z3, Z5, Glulx, and so on. Other formats are a bonus.

The Mac has a spectacular interpretor, but I've been so far out of the loop with interactive fiction for so long, I'm wondering where Windows and Linux stand these days.

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.
