    SIMS Lesson Monitor - Will it run on a Linux OS?

    I am trying to find out if the SIMS Lesson Monitor will run on a Linux System, i have a school wanting to purchase the new Eee Pc's and would like to know as they dont want to waste any money.

    Has anyone got it running on Linux or a Eee Pc with Windows?

    well, its running on the terminal server.

    I don't think it would run ON a linux machine, as its a windows executable for the install. possibly with a emulator or WINE.

    There's also the possiblity of getting the functionality you need through learning gateway

    I found SIMS + Wine a difficult a task and settled for Terminal Services too.

    I figured that with the lack of processing power in the eee, it made sense to utilise that of a larger platform.
