hi all

i am trying to run wine ... the windows emulator for linux... i am not having much success there...
the reason i am trying this is because i want to completely migrate from winxp to linux.

i am a fairly novice linux user. anyways ... one of the major use of my homepc is for voice communication. i use a internet telephony software to contact family in america. and internet telephony service providers dont support linux. :cry:

thats where wine comes in ... has anyone tried to do something like this? has anyone used msn messenger voice service via wine????

THe problem is ... I dont want to install the whole windows on my system.... what i am trying to achieve is a complete "windowsfree pc" ... with total functionality!!!

maybe its just a dream .... but i have heard ppl have achieved larger dreams using linux ... so i am keeping my hopes up ! :)
