dual boot - Must install software twice?
Hello! I'm almost ready to install Linux. Some important questions remain unanswered. Here is my most important question.
I'm setting up a dual boot machine, winXP and Fedora Core 3. I've read about using one Mozilla profile shared between both platforms, so I suspect I'll get no trouble with this.
This should work great, Mozilla for Windows on my WinXP, and Mozilla for Linux on Linux.
Now, about software made only for Windows. I've read about installing Windows software on Linux with Wine, I've read about using Wine in Linux to run Windows software installed on Windows.
Finally, I'm getting to my big question: If I need to use a certain Windows program in Windows and in Linux, must I install it twice, once on each platform? Or is ok installing only in Windows?
The situation is different from the Mozilla case, because Mozilla indeed has a version for each platform.
My two most important programs for this are Macromedia Studio (confirmed to work, I don't remember where) and Trillian (instant messaging). I would rather keep Trillian than switch to Gaim, mostly for purpose of message archive. Plus, if I could use Trillian in both platforms like Mozilla, that would be super awesome.
