Good News Everyone!

No, not the tepid Futurama episode on TV earlier this evening. Instead, the answer to the following question.
Can you run Swiss Perfect under Linux?
A: Yes.
Having put the latest Ubuntu distribution (8.04) on my laptop last month, and installing 'wine', simply clicking on the sp98.exe file on my Windows partition brought it up without a hitch. The only thing to watch for is that wine doesn't use the normal Windows Registry, instead using its own. This means you will have to re-enter the username and serial key that you received when you purchased your copy. Otherwise another nail in the coffin of Microsoft.
