A new way to use Linux.

| I downloaded his project, a virtual desktop, residing on my windows XP 
| partition, signed up as a user, and am now testing everything to see how it 
| works. You sign on to a Linux desktop, use its programs, save the data, which 
| resides onsite, or you can save it locally. It is still in its early stages 
| and there is not every program that you might want, or need. There are 
| different levels of subscriptions, so I can see a use for individuals, and  
| even small business operators.

The making of Wine (how to make Windows apps merrier with Linux)

,----[ Quote ]
| Enterprises badly want alternatives to
| Windows. Desktop Linux has come a long way since 1999, too. and (who knew?)
| the Mac has become the ultra chic, must-have PC. The enterprise has its
| alternatives - if it can only get those mission critical Windows apps to work
| flawlessly. Wine, in its commercial form, has been doing so for years.
| So, in 2008, the 1.0 version will hit the streets and the timing could not be
| more perfect. White admits that not every Windows application will work
| flawlessly on Wine, but many a critical one for the enterprise has been
| specifically optimized.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
