Sorry to have missed your post until now.

See my response to "J" - probably in another thread (I won't go looking 
'cause I am getting just kinda p***** o** about all this).

It cannot possibly be a simple case of being "in denial".

A person who claims to be an "experienced person"' in Linux and who 
changed over all the computers to Ubuntu under his control in a company, 
and who runs/has run VMWare now asks how to install wine?!

I won't go into the possibilities of what we have here to do deal with 
as it may be considered inappropriate to some people here....


Went to a discount massage parlour the other day. Wasn't 'til I paid me money that I found out that it was self-service.
