Win4Lin

Postby temarc » Sat Mar 24, 2007 10:40 am

I'm currently running Kunbuntu-amd64, and was able to get Win4Lin running correctly. But, I'm really unhappy with the support for 32bit vs. 64bit software plugins, etc. After reading reviews of Mint, I'd like to hose off the hdd with mouthwash. LOL
I already know this is a 32bit Mint, but I also know that soon, my FX will be happy. What ever flavor of Linux it chews on.

I used to use Win4Lin, but ditched it for VMWare. You shouldn't have issues with Win4Lin on Mint, but do yourself a favor and go with VMWare, leap years ahead of Win4Lin.

my favorite emulator: http://www.virtualbox.org very easy to install and just works. dont know about the support for 64 bit, but it's well worth looking into
