    does anybody know when a new Wine is coming out, I still have problems running some programs and I have to use a Windows computer to do it.

    Id like to make a full switch to Linux but it just isnt possible at the moment untill Wine is fully working.

    Wine is fully functional. See http://www.winehq.com for more info. Also check out this site, as it's an excellent wine[x] resource.

    it does have some problems with games though that look for debugers. that is why there is the CVS cedega (formerly known as winex) you will have to pay for full cedega if you need to install games onto a native linux partition as stupid cd protection gets in the way.

    We might be able to list Linux alternatives if you'll post which programs you're trying to install, the exception of course being games.

    Though various games do run natively under Linux (esp. the Unreal Tournament series). Praises be to those developers, and a pocks on all other game devs!

    Don't forget the other option for non-games apps - Codeweavers Crossover plugin.

    They've done a great job getting apps to run, and most of them flawlessly.
