MultiCharts on Linux/WINE

Postby Arbitrageur » 03 Nov 2008

Has anyone tried running Multicharts in a Linux environment using an XP emulator such as Wine?

At the risk of necroposting, I certainly would love to get off of the hamster wheel that is windows.

I expect the answer is "no', but is there any possibility of running MC using WINE compatibility method ?

And, while in fantasy mode, the ideal would be a docker container that can be "just run" with a volume mount for where the database and settings need persistence...

Thank you. I'm already using kvm to run Windows 8.1 but I would like to get away from Windows altogether as the writing is on the wall that they will force everybody on to the Windows 10 bloated environment.

All one really wants is to run the MC app not to create a Microsoft Live account and get on the Microsoft Windows 10 hamster wheel.
