    not good with linux? it's not a problem. firstly, you should install wine. your distro should provide a method for installing it (follow their instructions). then go to Wine HQ for more details in running wine. i've never heard of solid edge and, tbh, i doubt it will work. winehq has a list of applications known to work (although it's far from complete) and it should also have the basic instruction manual on too.

    if you want a basic overview, firstly run
    Code:
    winecfg
    to set up wine (go through the config settings) then mount your disc drive (if your distro does it automatically then just insert your CD) and do:
    Code:
    cd disc_drive
    wine setup.exe
    where disc_drive is where you mounted your install CD
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
