wine allows you to run non native Linux apps, but the thread is about Linux irc apps - not windows irc apps running on Linux :p

Wine is a translation layer (a program loader) capable of running Windows applications on Linux and other POSIX compatible operating systems. Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop.

Another very fine cut and paste job. Not sure just who's question you're answering, though....

irssi is quite clearly the best client EVAR! :D

In reference to Lord's post, he posted what WINE stands for, it's an acronym. I would imagine he is already knowledgeable on the subject ;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
