    Your always going to have troubles running windows software in linux no I haven't got a clue whether it runs in opensuse.

    Like putting a v8 engine in a MG just because it can be done doesn't mean it is easy.

    Personally I don't see the need for a specific irc app there is tons to choose from, afaik they all use the same basic technology I suspect from the many choices you'll find one close enough. And if not you always have windows which runs windows software nearly perfectly.

    Well.. if this is really irc, I like Konversation. If you want an IRC
    like client that also does IM, you can try Kopete or Pidgin, or
    Konversation utilizing a local bitlbee server (though bitlbee seems to
    not be in an active state of development? Thus Yahoo IM will stop
    working in a week or two).

    (I have NO idea what mirc is... so I'm taking a big guess here)

    Why don't you try Virc instead of mirc. Virc is an IRC client, but for linux, it has all the options of mirc and more. Try it! It's in the distribution CD or DVD (or you can download it from repositorie, as you wish)

    wine really isn't some magic pill that suddenly makes every windows application work.

    Generally you'll find you have to do nothing more than click the exe and it will do it automagically(As in attempt to install), then if lucky it will place a menu entry in the menu and/or a desktop icon. In the rare circumstances it doesn't then you may have to navigate to the hidden .wine folder and find the exe again in browser it should click and run and if not
    Code:
    wine /path/to/the/app
    But tbh you'll find the transition a lot easier if rather than trying to fit windows applications into your linux use you look for alternatives. Many times you'll have to troubleshoot why a app isn't installing/running via wine. Easiest is to have a look here to see what other peoples experience is WineHQ - Browse Applications

    I was a Windows mIRC user, and I find Konversation extremely similar and an easy transition. Of course, I also IRC'd in the days of *****X's prime, and that was the greatest thing ever.
