      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Itunes, the only reason I keep my windows 7 install. One stupid program. Not for me, but for my daughter and her Iphone. Otherwise, she has no problems using Linux, or as she calls my Mint install "Cinnamon".


Over the years, I have tried in vain to get this to run via wine. Has anyone here tried it using vmware or virtual box, with a windows host? Die / does it work for you? As someone who hasn't played too much vmeware or virtualbox, is one a better choice for what I want to try?

Ran it in VirtualBox. The only thing when doing updates to iPhone, etc, you have to keep monitoring if the USB device is connected and not and click every now and then when required, to get the update of the phone to continue.


Other than that, no real major problems.
