    Careful Tom - "At the moment" carries connotations. You're not implying that an Linux version is in the pipeline are you? That's coming close to breaching "no vaporware"

    Wine looks very interesting... to quote from the project page:
    Wine is an implementation of the Windows 3.x and Win32 APIs on top of X and Unix. Think of Wine as a Windows compatibility layer. Wine provides both a development toolkit (Winelib) for porting Windows sources to Unix and a program loader, allowing unmodified Windows 3.1/95/NT binaries to run under Intel Unixes. Wine works on most popular Intel Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.

    Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely alternative implementation consisting of 100% Microsoft-free code, but it can optionally use native system DLLs if they are available. Wine comes with complete sources, documentation and examples and is freely redistributable. (The licensing terms are similar to X11.)
    What exactly does it mean by "porting sources" ? Surely that will only apply to c/c++ ? it didnt say
    hmmm now im gonna have to set up 'nix to test if my PB apps can be run on 'nix... @ 12mb though, that's a large runtime

    I successfully ran a PB app with wine, I couldn't get the pbedit.exe
    to work though. Wine is very impressive package, I got VB6.exe to work
    on it, alittle buggy but it worked.

    I don't have any first hand experience, but the WINE project sounds promising... http://www.winehq.org/
