Switching to Linux?

Post by ilayda »

I am growing tired of Vista and am exploring new avenues for my OS. Linux has come up, but I know little about it. Obviously I can search for dedicated forums and such, but as MM is my most important piece of software... Is it possible to use MM on linux (or via another program) and if so, what distribution would be best for this?

Wine is the common way to run Windows programs. MediaMonkey 5 is expected to at some point run natively on Linux (MAC OS support is planned before this though).

Btw, comment on WINE support for MM5: Chromium applications have huge issues running on WINE, so after testing for a bit, we decided to not pursue getting it to work on there. However, in the meantime before we get native Linux support on MM5, a decent number of users have had success with MM4 on WINE. https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... n&iId=5519
