There is a possible "rich man's" solution to running WINE. It seems silly, but you could just Remote Desktop back to a Windows machine. This requires a second computer running NT/XP Pro and a fairly fast LAN, so it isn't a very good work around.

I need wine to run a program called FREE!ship that is a great little program for helping in the design of boats. I would also like to try and run a CAD program that I also use.

QickBooks alternative


Hey! this is puppy a light, small and simple distro for your 'everyday' needs.

Puppy is not meant to run a company. If you have a company that you have to administer in QuickBooks, Then get a decent computer and a full distro.

Yes, Puppy is impresive doing what it's designed to do, that doesn't mean that it's everything for everyone.

Actually you will see that many (most?) of the puppy heavy users use Puppy for the convenience and speed but also a different distro when they need to do more demanding stuff (development, video processing, run a company, etc)

If your accounting requirements are not too demanding (don't require and integrated work flow from payroll, accounting, etc) you should have a look at this article

So, let's keep puppy simple and fast. If I'm going to drive in the city, park anywhere and save gas, I may get a smart car. If I'm moving, I'll get a truck.

Keep in mind that Wine only runs a very limited number of Windows programs from wihin Linux. Some very well, others not at all. Folks should take a look at the Wine HQ web page and look at the list of supported applications.

There are also some offshoots of Wine, such as Codweavers. If you look at their web page, you will also see a limited number of supported programs.

Well yes, but I already tested the program I needed in wine, besides, I believe you can get MOST programs working with wine if you tweak it.

I got ragnarok to work once.

I agree with rarsa. Very Happy
