I'm using Codeweavers WINE alongside Windows 2000 Pro.  About half the
programs I have tried have.  Admittedly the ones that haven't have
tended to be the heavyweights like Paintshop Pro (although that IS
alleged to work OK.. wonder if it's just Win2K it doesn't like?  I know
there are issues!)

I'm running mine in fake_windows mode and it seems to work OK.

What versions of Wine are you guys running?

Kind regards,
