Hey Guys,
I did a search of the forums on Wine and only came up with a few questions on install problems.

Checked out and of course everything there sounds great.

Is anyone running Wine successfully? How well does it work for you? Are there other alternatives that work better?

I'd like to run MS Frontpage on Wine and move my Web development off of Windows. Yes I know there are Linux Web development solutions but I have to maintain a LARGE Web site that has been built in FrontPage ( and don't have the time to learn a new development tool and then rewrite scripts for all the little things on the site that make use of Frontpage extensions.

Thanks in advance,

I don't use wine for anything. I have never been very impressed with the stability of running things with wine. So my opinion is ... change your requirements to be able to use linux alternatives ... OR ... use Windows for programs that you can't use a linux equivilant for.

Windows is a better windows than linux biggrin.gif
