Second that. Not a gamer, just need to use a program for which there
exists no linux counterpart. Have received *no* help. Don't have time
to dig through old archives, FAQs, wikis, etc. I know the developers
are volunteers, but wouldn't getting a real live business program
running be a feather in *someone's* cap? As it is, I had to stuff a
crappy old windoze box on my network just so I can get this work done;
not happy.
