Last time I tried wine failed to run Encarta but I have an old Grolier CD (before the encylopaedias became "multimedia" and flashy).
It's a shame a modern encyclopaedia isn't sold linux compatible. Doesn't anyone see an easy market by just creating a second engine for their content.

Subject: [ILUG] Totally Linux
Generally speaking I think I would like to turn my entire PC over to the
Linux operating syst. However what principally deters me is the lost of
the various encylopaedas and dictionaries such as Britannica and Encarta.
