I too am a Crossover person, i recently aquired 4.1 and im quite
pleased. I mainly use it for office though to be honst, but that is as
there are still a lot fo people who only seem to use M$ documents.

I've used it on ubuntu, fedora 3, debian, mandrake 10.1/cooker and
RHAS 3.0 so far and i've never had any problems with it, I admit that
i have never really used plain WINE though.

Theres no place like ::1
