Google Talk on Linux

Google Talk works fine with a Jabber compatible IM client such as GAIM but out of curiousity I tried to install the Windows client so I could use the voice function. Alas, my version of Wine isn’t up to the task. No matter what path I enter in the second dialog the INSTALL button is always greyed out! Others have had more luck installing, but the application doesn’t run yet. (Thanks Feedster!)

Can I run Windows viruses in Linux?

It’s almost possible, but the results in this article on running Windows viruses with Wine are disappointing. There are problems but things are improving so Linux users can enjoy all the benefits of Windows!

It just isn’t fair that Windows users get all the viruses. I mean really, shouldn’t Linux users be in on the fun as well? Well… thanks to the folks running the Wine project, Linux users can “catch the virus bug” too — sort of.
