Hi I just bought WingIDE. I don't know whether anyone else has mentioned this, but WingIDE can be easily installed on a Debian (V.3.0r0 Woody/i386). Debian is not officially supported according to Reference Manual (I'd better say not mentioned). Here is a little how-to install WingIDE on Debian: 1. Download the WingIDE wingide-xxx.rpm package. 2. Install the alien-Package (which is part of the Debian Package Collection (use apt-get or kpackage or aptitude, ...). The alien-Package transforms (among others) a *.rpm package into a *.deb package which is Debian friendly. 3. Change into the directory where the wing-xxx.rpm lies and issue the following command at the cmd prompt: alien -d wingide-xxx.rpm A "wing-xxx.deb" can now be found in the same directory. To install the this package issue the following command at the prompt: dpkg -i wing-xxx.rpm Now, Debian will install it. It worked on my system. I hope this helps, Greetings, Marco
