    WiiChat needs a pure GNU/Linux thread for people to share their experiences with GNU/Linux.

    My GNU/Linux distro of choice is:

    UBUNTU/KUBUNTU
    Current Version: 7.10

    Okay, let's start the chatting!

    I deleted Windows XP PRO SP2 for (K)UBUNTU, and I don't regret it one bit.

    I don't like what TransGaming's Cedega is doing to Wine though, not even sharing the source code, and I'm not paying a monthly fee to play games I've already purchased.
    Maybe a one-time fee, but not this...

    Wine/Cedega/CrossOver Office = Runs Windows programs.

    Cedega (A.K.A. WineX) does not contribute back to it's base, Wine.

    Cedega has mo. fees starting at $5.

    If you like making flash animations, Macromedia Flash works perfectly using Wine!

    To install wine, just type in the terminal:

    sudo apt-get install wine
