    CCP actually supported Linux, but they dropped support.

    According to this article, it runs under Wine.

    in addition to Jim's excellent answer, there is a package named
    IEs4Linux...last time i tried it, it worked (despite being
    unbelievably ugly)...it is not in the openSUSE repos, but as i recall
    there was a script that did everything, simple!

    Installation - IEs4Linux

    and, IE9 is in the works..

    For what is the IE problematic: I tried to install via wine the IE 7 and 8 but the new installation routine of Microsoft does apparently not permit the installation with wine. The program want first to install the "security essentials" and various "updates" and as a result then, if you do not select the option, you cannot install.
    Tatanka does install with 11.1 but only as version 6, while version 7 is abortive. The version 6 is functional but the flash installation does not terminate therefore if you needed IE for a look in software that was base on flash and IE you cannot it. I found and easy workaround. I did put the lock-in program in the recycle bin.

    thanks for the feedback...i didn't know it won't install any more as i
    hadn't put it on this 11.3 (because i haven't had a need to care how my
    web designs worked with IEs)..

    so, i guess if MS has decided to close that door, it ok with me..

    multimedia support on Linux has a long way to go compared to the applications listed above. I know there are some good alternatives for video editing, but for graphic and sound production there are no good ones in my opinion. Sure Gimp is powerful to be a free software, but the gui and some default options doesn't make sense at all. Hope that will change in the future and seem there will be a new gui released. When it comes to music production on Linux there is LMMS, but I don't have much experience from that so can't comment on it. Anyone tried?

    It may sound strange but I like Windows Media Player a lot because of the SRS WOW effect.

    But I know that its Microsoft's very own product so there's no chance of getting a Linux version.

    Although if SRS WOW gets included in any Linux based or cross-platform player I will be more that happy.

    Secondly, I wish the game called HAWX becomes available for Linux. I played it at a friend's place & liked it a lot.

    I agree. Since I am a Netflix subscriber, I cannot stop using Windows, since there is no way to stream Netflix using Linux.
