I was curious to see how Flash 8 AND Dreamweaver would work without problems thanks to it so I gave it another try. I had a big surprise in MintInstall when I found Wine-Doors!!! The screenshot in mintInstall drew my attention (thanks Mint team for those screenshots they really help!). I opened Wine-Doors and saw this nice list of applications (like 7zip, Flash 8, Dreamweaver , Photoshop CS2 9, HL-2 FPS and more!). I installed Dreamweaver and indeed, it works flawlessly \(^o^)/. I'm giving the final smack to Windows FINALLY (I still need Solid Edge for 3D modeling but I'll use it at school). Thank you dlkreations & thank you Mint Team!

As soon as aMSN gets their audio side going, so that I can talk rather than typing, it's goodbye XP.

If your mfgr distributes the BIOS as a separate pkg. Mine doesn't. Although I haven't tried running the Windows exe under a DOS boot. I would, but then, they'll charge me an arm to fix it if something goes wrong.
