Running Calc 98 on Linux using Wine

Calc can be run on Linux computers that are based on Intel x86 processors by using the Wine compatibility layer. Wine is an open-source project and the Wine software can be downloaded free. There is also a commercial version of this product which can be obtained from CodeWeavers called CrossOver. We recommend this product if you want to avoid the fairly complicated process of installing Wine.

The following screenshot shows Calc98 running remotely on a server. The server operating system is SuSE Linux 7.0, and it is running Wine, release 20000430. The client computer OS is Windows XP and it is using the Hummingbird Exceed X Window server, version 6.0.1.0.
