| StarNet Communications of Sunnyvale, California, a leading developer of 
| Windows/Linux/UNIX connectivity solutions, today announced the industry’s 
| first PC X server capable of re-displaying a full remote Unix or Linux 
| console to a Windows desktop. X-Win32 version 9.4 also offers Windows users 
| an innovative new way to connect to a remote host via a secure gateway host.    


Sooner or later those users will realise that setting up GNU/Linux (in a
partition at least) is better.

| Wine is one of the fastest developed open source applications. A new Wine 
| version is released every two weeks. Not only can you run World of Warcraft, 
| but new and heavy games like Call of Duty 4 are also supported. One 
| application that users have been wanting to run on Linux for several years is 
| Adobe Photoshop. We’ve been doomed to use version 8 until recently. Google is 
| helping out with the development to have Photoshop CS3 supported. As for now, 
| Photoshop CS2 runs without any problems.
