I understand that mIRC is very compatible under Linux with Wine, and perhaps any other Windows Emu like Virtual PC on the MAC.


Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

Yeah yeah... and LAME Aint an MP3 Encoder. :tongue:

All that FAQ states is that WINE doesn't emulate the x86 hardware, but it does emulate the Windows API which is the heart of Windows and its GUI. Emulation means to simply reverse engineer something and reproduce it outside of its usual constraints. WINE does this well.

I will however correct my statement about "Other Windows Emu's like Virtual PC"... as VPC actually emulates the x86 hardware allowing you to install a real copy of Windows. blush

RedHat 9 doesn't come with mIRC, neither does SuSe 8.2. I've never heard of a distro that does.

Are you sure you're not confusing mIRC with other clients such as xchat?
