Well I hope the appz you need for work run ok for you but if not I'm sure if you post the names and any error codes that sum1 will be able to assist.Athena wrote:I've already installed Wine, and hope to test it in the next few days

For some applications the difference is negligable, but for those which require more CPU and memory it can definitely be noticably slower when you run Windows apps on Linux via WINE. So for those you might be better off finding a native Linux replacement if possible (like GIMP in place of Photoshop), or simply booting into Windows if you have to use something more specific that requires a lot of power. Just a thought...
