I plan on installing Linux (Fedora Core). I however, want to make sure that I can run all my favorite software on it first. A major problem occurs for mIRC. I searched the web and found no way of running it under Linux. If anyone knows a way please tell me. It would be very hard to let go of such a great program.

I heard of the program Wine for Linux which lets you run Windows Apps. If anyone knows...is it good or bad tell me please. Greatly appreciate it!

I tried Wine with mIRC one time (a couple years ago), didn't work all that great. It kept giving a memory error, can't remember what it was. I say to try it; if it works great, if it don't nothing lost nothing gained. A lot has changed in mIRC and Linux since, so my experience may not be applicable.

Many people use Wine with mIRC without any problems. It depends partly on which Linux distro you're using, I guess. Just try it and see. Ideally, you'll not get rid of Windows completely until you know for sure that everything you have works fine in Linux.

mirc works just fine with wine on fedora core I have been running it for a year or so. I dont know about any scripting or coding conflicts because I use mirc for what it was made for, chat. Good luck
Happy mIRC user on Linux
