Ok, I'm planning as I wait for the Final.
What I'm trying or wanting to do is what every other smart person is trying to do, get away from M$ !
My biggest 2 things are,
1- I need to have a Internet Browser that can do everything IE 6.0 can. What I mean is that it needs to be able to run web based applications. We do a lot of electronic parts catologs that use activex, micrographix, adobe, ect.
I'm thinking my only option for this would be vmware. But, I'm not sure.
2- I need to be able to Emulate a vt100 using telnet. This is for accessing an OpenVMS DecNet system. For some strange reason, I have been very unsuccessful in my atempts to do this for the past year. It would also need to be able to do keyboard mapping. ( Ex. F11 to F13 ). The only way I have been able to do some of this is by using wine and hyperterminal. But hyperterminal is flaky at best, and has no keyboard mapping. I also have to set 7bit ascii in hyperterminal, but haven't seen any thing about that in the man pages for rxvt, gtelnet, xterm, ect.
Any suggestions ?
P.S. All my attempts at this has been on Mandrake 9.1
TIA ( Thanks in Advanced )
