Linux and Bibleworks and/or Logos
I as being driven absolutely bats by "Windows Vista" Microsoft's Inopperative System. Since I had to get a new laptop when the old one broke I have been suffering Vista. no relief is in sight till Seven is released - if it is really any less terribly bad. The last straw was an attempt to access and copy to thre local hardrive some PodBible
files to upload via FTP to a server in the USA. After Vista had copied each file, the uploads to the USA happened within seconds, but copying between external and internal hard-drives is taking over an hour for about 7MB of files.
I am now only needing Windows to run Bibleworks, and occasionally Logos. All my other needs can be sorted by using Linux and Linux software (I'll really miss Camtasia, and no doubt some video conversion will not be as easy, but I'll manage.
So does anyone know (for a fact because they have been doing it) that a Linux Windows emulator will run Bibleworks and/or Logos? Or does anyonme know how to get Vista to access external (USB) hard-drives to give reasonable transfer rates?
To make an infuriating situation worse a newer external drive that I am using for backup comes with its own Synch program that runs as a portable app from the drive itself and it can copy files in seconds that Vista takes hours over :(
