Mit den Augen rollen To try out wine I started installing windows versions of open source software. For the record, if anyone wants to know. Abiword, NVU, and Audacity work fine in wine Mit den Augen rollen

I have tried Wine now mainly for graphics demos. Depending on the own hardware several demos are running quite good with Wine. Also my favorite torrent client uTorrent is working.

Hi Phersotty. Don't Abiword, NVU, and Audacity already run in Linux without Wine? I am not impressed with Wine so far. I have a small windows app that is used to program my ham radio handheld transceiver. It will run under wine, but cannot access the com ports to talk to the radio. I have used a simple serial terminal program in Linux, and was able to access the radio via the serial port. However, programming the radio is extremely slow and cumbersome using the terminal prigram and sending commands one at a time.

When I can run the Windows programming software and it works perfectly, I may be impressed.

Don't get me wrong, its cool what these folks are trying to do, but I think it is a near impossible for some windows software to be run under Linux.

What we really need is foe Linux users to demand that software and drivers be written for Linux,
not just windows.

Yeah thats why I was calling myself an idiot by trying to run windows versions of oss software in wine. Why not just use the Linux versions... duh

kb0hae, You might have more access to the ports by emulating the whole Windows OS and loading your ham program in there? I'm thinking something like Qemu or Vmware

Perhaps the most useful closed-source Windows application I can think of right now is Skype 3x with its video and Skypecast functionality. The current version available for Linux at this time is Skype 1.3x which does not offer either of these 2 features, unfortunately.

Has anyone managed to run Skype 3x on Debian, Kanotix or any other Linux distro using Wine or some other type of Windows software emulator?

Ok that sounds like a no-go! Anyway I don't fancy the idea of using Wine.

On second thoughts, has anyone tried to port the OSX Skype version to Linux? After all, OSX is really a pimped up BSD. In other words, it is also a Unix.

The current OSX version of Skype is 2.5 and is missing the Skypecast feature but does include video calling: http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/macosx/

If only the developers at Skype were to consider that the total number of Linux users are likely greater in numbers, online time and potential buying power of premium services than the averagely sedated OSX consumer.

Or ideally someone is already engaged in reverse enginering Skype to make it compatible with some other but open source video + VoIP application.

Skype video and Skypecasts are the only 2 things that keeps me booting XP on a regular basis Traurig
