    Can Alpha run on a Linux OS ?

    I believe Alpha Five is a 32 bit application requiring Windows 9x or NT.

    I haven't heard that Alpha Software has released a version for Linux.

    Will you be running native Linux apps, or emulating Windows somehow?

    Based on what I've read on the "boxes," LINUX has the ability to run Win98 on top of it. SuSE 6.4 (the one I bought but haven't installed yet) has a piece of paper (ad) included that sells a package to let you run Win98 on top of SuSE (most popular version in Europe). SuSE 6.4 can be bought at Best Buy for $30, or at for $50 (go figure). It's supposed to be the easiest to install and seems to have a number of nice features and included software (including full web server capability).

    You may also want to check out the Wine project at . They are working on letting Linux run windows apps without having to have Windows on your computer.
