Hello all, finally in a position to use Mint ALMOST exclusively, need support for 3 windows apps and then it will be exclusive.

So now that I am on Mint most of the day I am back on the forum.

Welcome bezzy. One possible solution to running more of your Windows apps is to make sure you are running the latest Wine beta version. I think it is 1.3.23 at the moment.
