Hi folks,

Has there ever been any talk of porting mIRC to Linux? There is a desperate need for a decent IRC client for this OS.

It would not need to been open source, and could continue to be a shareware product.

Thanks for any future comments!

mIRC is 99% stable under Wine.

DLLs should work just as well. The ones I've run all work quite well under wine.

Check out the WineHQ Database entry for mIRC: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=12568

Specifically, use WineTricks to get some things, such as Riched32.

Also, to fix the list redraw issues, I've written a script: http://code.google.com/p/winefix/source/browse/trunk/winefix.mrc

Regards
JD
