    Accelerated? Do you mean accelerated via eg DirectX, OpenGL or someother API that utilizes the graphics card/drivers to do drawing?

    Accelerated Reader is a reading evaluation program from a company called Renaissance Learning (www.renlearn.com). They have a suite of software for schools to use to document and evaluate progress in the core curriculi such as reading and math. Currently we are forced to run these programs on windows.

    ok, maybe these links can be of interest:

    The forums on Crossover have someone having success with AR and awarding it a silver star. But thatīs only one person though.
