Linux Compatibility

While BibleWorks does not have a specific Linux version, some users have reported that BibleWorks runs successfully under Windows virtual machines in Linux.  Some popular Windows VMs include VirtualBox and VMWare. In addition, we have increased support for WINE (http://www.winehq.com, http://www.codeweavers.com). For users who want to run using WINE, we recommend CrossOver using the CrossTie settings here: http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=10025.
