Trying wine and Cross-Over , both programms are unable to run our application, we are now testing Win4Lin 4.0. Unfortunately "netraverse" does not support Debian distributions. Therefor I am unable to install Win4Lin 4.0.
FWIW - I've been running Win4Lin on Debian (Unstable) for close to a
year with very few problems. I build my own kernels. It hasn't been
a huge deal to apply the Win4Lin patches to my kernel. You typically
have to wait 1-2 months before they release the patches for a new
Performance is good. Display is a little flickery. Almost all my
applications work. The main downside is that you're running a Win9x
version, which suck even without Win4Lin and Linux mixed in. VMWare
allows you to run more solid Windows versions, at a huge performance
or hardware upgrade cost.
Netraverse's support has also been very good. I heartily recommend
Win4Lin if you're willing to rough it with kernel building.
