    Exclamation Mac users, CLICK THIS

    I found a way to load programs on mac that doesn't require a windows disc, and doesn't take a lot of memory like VMWare. It's called Wine, and I'm in the process of installing it right now.

    It's a bit complicated to install, but it's not that bad if you have basic knowledge of how a mac works. You do need to know how to use terminal.

    So if you want to use a .ff viewer like me, or basically any windows program on your mac, this is the best tool to use. However, an Intel Mac is required, sorry Power PC people. :P

    So Mac users, rejoice ! I'll get back to you guys with results of how it works. Here's the link to installing it, if you want to try it yourself.

    I used Wine with Ubuntu (Linux) and I just suggest using VMware or Virtualbox. Just an awful idea it turned out for me. Maybe others have had better experiences with it.

    Actually I'm having problems too, I'm just going to use one of our laptops. Slow windows/:

    EDIT: Old post, but I can run trucha signer, and several other programs using Wine, but i use VMware fusion for the .ff viewer.
