Ok, I have Ubuntu linux and latest wine installed. I never used wine before so could you please tell how exactly do I run FAR under wineconsole?

Hi, I thought I should also comment on Far vs Open Source. While Open source does mean that everyone does have access to source code and could modify them if wanted to, in most active OSS projects the branching never happens (a few notable exceptions are perhaps Linux and emacs) Examples of large pr...
