Well, still not quite on LINUX yet even thought my Son installed Ubuntu
8.04 for me and it worked until
we decided to see if WINE would allow me to use Rootsmagic 1.0 with
patch to 1.4. It seemed like it was doing something, then Ouch!
Don't have time to mention the ten hour ordeal of getting Windows back
after the Boot crash mess, and now have my second Linux database inside
the Compuker but not hooked up so as to allow me the use of something.
Anyhow, maybe someone will be able to evaluate the following which if
possible would allow me to go to LINUX without needing to go thru
another Dual Boot / WINE mess...
According to my Son Codeweavers is at a cost and the new WINE is to be
able to preform as well??? Sounds good but didn't happen.

RM version 2 works very well via Crossover Office version 5.
I have installed RootsMagic 3 with Version 5 of Codeweavers
Professional. It works great. So all of you Die Hard Linux Fans, make or
stay with Linux BCuz RM works.
AGAIN, I use the computer about 80 to 90% for Genealogy research, and if
this Rootsmagic Program worked on Linux, I'd be 100% LINUX rather than
still being stuck with Bill Gates nonsense. Need your input and opinions
and comments on this.
I have tried the GRAMPS Linux Genealogy program in Version 1.0 that was
very linited. Version 2.0 with patches is much better, but nothing like
the excellent Rootsmagic program. Also again, too old to learn Python.
