I've never found anything to work to good with wine. Except maybe some 
mixed fruit or Seven Up, but that's a whole other story.

Seriously, I've tried to get some things to work with wine but without 
much success. That was in another distro though. I notice that wine 
seems to be better integrated into Kubuntu than that other one. Perhaps 
I will try it again.

As for vmware, well, I've never given it to much thought. I don't 
particularly want to run Windows in Linux. If I wanted to run Windows I 
would just run it.

If by "geek software" you mean "special interest software", that it is. 
BUT, if your out storm chasing/watching in tornado alley it comes in 
REAL handy. It's ok to chase tornado's but you sure don't want to catch 
one by the tail. The only way I ever want to catch one is on video. 
Weather Channel pays pretty good for some good video.

I wrote and asked if they, more like "he", had ever considered a Linux 
version. [ It appears that it is a one man operation. ] It says it 
requires "directx" to work.
