Just curious, has anyone tried AM in Linux? WINE is supposed to support OGL, so I guess it would work. It sounds like WINE works the same way the OS X port will, it translates the win32 api.

There are people that have managed to get lightwave working with wine. But I haven't heard anything about AM. Try it and let us know. . .

Just did a search of the AM list. It sounds like the CD copy protection would be a problem for WINE. There is another flavor of WINE for running games called WineX that might work. Unfortunately it's not free. It costs a whopping $5 a month. Anyway, not sure how much I care. I saw a cool Linux distro called Lycoris this morning and thought, boy, that would be cool if I could run AM on it. Hmmm.....

Linux makes for great servers. Unlimited users all hooked up through samba. Can't beat that. XP Pro caps out at 10 users at a time. . . and if you want more. . . you have to pay.

I like free. . .
