    Anyone have experience in installation and or use of XCircuits? I just upgraded to Redhat Fedora and none of my old CAD programs are supported [Novarm,diptrace; R$Systems, Proteus; Eptsoft; Global Circuits].

    Is there a emulation program out there that can run Windows applications under Linux?

    Emulation Programs:
    WINE Project
    CrossOver

    Virtual Machines:
    VMware
    Win4Lin
    Xen

    You can find download links at the bottom of the articles. WINE is the most common, but is only partially compatible. On the other hand, most of the virtual machines will require a Windows CD.

    I will move this to the Computing forum.

    qemu can run windows up to but not including vista, then you can install and run XCircuit or most any program though some games won't work.

    XCircuit does run under Linux.

    Try Wine for start. If the application installs and runs okay under it, you don't get all the troubles of running a virtual machine.

    Although I cannot comment specifically for XCircuit, WINE tends to be very good for the above purposes.

    Clarification: XCircuit runs under Linux natively, without Wine. But the poster may use Wine to run Windows-only apps, like those he mentioned.
