  2. Good point Tom. The Linux version of Picasa that I installed on the Eee pc had a Wine directory if I remember correctly.

  3. Hi Robert,
    i've found ies4osx a useful tool for checking html on IE from my mac, runs on darwine and is based on ies4linux.
    I hope to see an Eee next week at teachMeet.
