Wine 1.0

Well, yesterday was an amazing day. Not only did Firefox 3 come out, (and the Firefox servers crashed under the amount of people trying to download it) but Wine 1.0 came out after 15 years of development. For anyone who does not know, Wine is a program which allows users to run Windows "exe" files in Linux. Absolutely amazing. Some great games are available because of Wine.

I am compiling Wine as I write, because otherwise it will take me a few days before I can get it through Yum. I'm psyched. Of course, this generally takes a half hour, but I can wait.

On the flip side, I am trying to install Rainlendar in Fedora 9, and don't quite remember how I did it in Ubuntu. And the Nvidea drivers are not supported with the lastest kernel. And I need to crack some wireless. Oh boy, so much to do, so much time spent blogging.

And now, back to work.
