Use Cool Page On Linux/Unix Systems
The Cool Page program is designed for use with Windows operating systems and can also be used on Linux/Unix systems when the computer has a program such as Virtual PC for Windows installed, or
a similar software product such as Wine or the Lindows operating system.
Virtual PC for Windows
Virtual PC™ for Windows, made by Connectix, enables you to run multiple operating systems directly on your Windows computer.
"Virtual PC for Windows allows you to create separate “virtual machines” on top of your Windows desktop, where you can install virtually any PC-based operating system including OS/2, Linux, Solaris, NetWare or other versions of Windows."
45 Day Free Trial
Existing Linux/Unix systems can run the Cool Page program if the WINE software is installed.
Wine is a program which allows the operation of DOS and MS Windows programs (Windows 3.x and Win32 executables) on UNIX.
Wine is free software.
Though Wine has the capability of running Internet Explorer for Windows, there is a chance that some Cool Page features may not function, such as PlugIns and the Objects Window, as these functions require certain Internet Explorer files that may or may not be available in an IE/Wine installation.
FranksCorner.com is a site that details how to configure Windows programs to run using WINE with exact instructions for Cool Page.
Lindows Operating System
Cool Page should work when installed on the Lindows operating system. Lindows is still in the process of refining it's technologies. See the latest news here.
"LindowsOS is a new operating system that delivers the power, stability and cost-savings of Linux with the ease of a windows environment. LindowsOS is easy to experience because of its friendly graphical interface and support for popular Microsoft Windows file types such as (.doc, .xls, .ppt, .jpg, .gif, .mp3, etc.)."
