    lol yes.

    But... this software is so popular? Why? You get to run Windows software on Linux, right?
    Um... ok... but I still don't get it.

    a easy to use front end for Wine?
    so you get the stability and other benefits of linux with compatibility with some windows programs you want or need to use?

    Yes. If the program was tested, it gets an entry in a database, where you get a rating of how well it runs.

    The must be making more of a hit than anticipated! If photoshop runs under Linux that is headline news for me. Then my excuse for not migrating to Linux becomes much weaker, and I may have to give it a try!

    BTW- I got my registration number a few minutes ago. (At least, they said it would be emailed to me within a few days). I still have to download the programs, if possible...

    I did download both versions of the programs. The server was apparently too busy the first time around, however the downloads proceeded quickly and easily the second time around. I am surprised that there would be that much interest in such programs. I did manage to convince my roommate to drop Internet Explorer in favor of Firefox. That reflects our level of sophistication. Could I have been left behind by the average computer user? I can't imagine what the average high school student knows about computers! More or less than the average computer user in his forties?

    Thank you farmerlee, sounds good :)
    So the demo download should accept my license and convert to full?

    I'm not too sure if you can convert the demo to full sorry.
    When you signed up for the freebie you should of registered with codeweavers and they sent out an email with instruction on how to download the full version. You simply install that and no license number is needed.
