- Great to hear that there is now a FREE VMware option. Last I checked,
maybe a month ago, only the $150 version was offered! Has anyone on
this list used VMware? Maybe we could start a discussion on the OT
list? I have lots of questions . . .

The NoteTab Off-Topic List
All Fookes Software mailing lists and more...
- Hi Casper,
besides getting NoteTab runnig on Linux, (which is possible for all I
know), becoming familiar, if not even friends (as time goes... ;) with
the Vim is not the baddest thing at all. I would say.
http://www.vim.org may help a little during the learning time, esp.
the tips section.
maybe most important:
Tip #305: Best of VIM Tips (VIM's best Features)
I have learned a lot from that "best of" tips collection, even after
using vi/vim for some years before. It's short and comprehensive, but
when you really can't make anything out of some of it just try to
enter ":help <what you dont know>" into your vim (when in command
mode, sure) and see ...
or type ":help " and the first chars of a term, then hit <TAB> as
often as you like - vim will scroll you through all the possible
matches in it's help..
May you getting NoteTab run on your Linux, and may you have fun with
Vim nevertheless... :)

It is not faultless on wine, but with each new version of wine, it
gets better. I just updated to Wine 0.9.2 on Fedora Core 3, and it
runs a little better than with 0.9. Wine is up to version 0.9.4, but
does not yet have an installer for my version of Linux, and I do not
have time to compile it from scratch right now.
There are some features and clip commands that do not run, but text
editing and outlines and most of my most used clips work without
modification. It will copy and past to and from the Linux clipboard,
but the pasteboard feature only works from one tab to another in NoteTab.
I put together a FAQ on running NoteTab on Linux with Wine.
My last update to that page was for Wine 0.9 and NoteTab Pro 4.95. I
have also gotten all the other Fookes software to run and they work
well with Wine.
I do not check this list often since it has so much activity, but I do
follow all the other NoteTab lists. This topic is best on the NoteTab
Off Topic List.
