Mr. Keating. May I call you Jessie? I know who you are and I respect you
a lot.

Would you please name "some very modern day applications that are
written for the windows platform" that will run in a Linux current
version of WINE? That will run under the currently available WINE in
Fedora 11. Names and versions. _Real_ applications. The ones that
ordinary 'users' want. Not the geeky ones that 'Linux geeks' want.

I am serious here. Really. The names are...?
