    Hmm...I tried running it through Wine, but it wouldn't run. No error messages, nothing.
    A bit disappointing, but oh well. sad

    I also tried the installer for EasyBCD beta 90, and that did run, but I didn't install it yet.

    The installer runs cause its not .net, but something like EasyBCD thats needs access to the registry probably won't work under Linux. Give it a try though, it would be awesome if you could get it working Smile

    So you stopped development on CSword and TRT?
    Any new projects you're working on now? Smile

    Btw, the Cr48 notebook for the Chrome OS sounds awesome.

    Any idea when it will be released, and how much it will cost?

    The cr-48 is a beta prototype notebook from Google. 60,000 are/were handed out to users to participate in Chrome OS's beta program. I'm one of the lucky few (in fact I"m typing this up on mine right now). Google has a partnership with Acer and Samsung, who are developing their own Chrome notebooks. These notebooks well cost between $200-$300. They are super easy to setup, auto-updating, and just down right amazing in terms of battery life. Us beta users are reporting issues and improving Chrome OS on a daily basis. Google wants to get these notebooks out to the masses sometime this year, but we'll see how that goes.

    As for csword/trt, yes... at least for right now. Real life has taken priority, and quite honestly, I'm more interested in development for the web at this point.

    Right. I meant the release version of the cr-48, whatever that's going to be called.
    Pretty cool. I think I might buy one when it comes out.

    (Feel free to split this discussion, btw, if you don't want it in your CSword thread)

    I assume Google has web apps already out to do mostly everything one might want to do on the Chrome notebook? And are these apps freely available to users who own a Chrome notebook, or do you have to pay for them?

    Web apps can be ran from any browser on any computer (not just a CR-48). For example, ever get on Facebook? Yep, thats a web app. Some are free, some are not. Google has many web apps (thats what they're known for besides Chrome Android and search). Google's got a web store called the Chrome Webstore. This marketplace showcases web applications and makes them easy to find. I'm a Google fanatic, and use just about all of their services. You can start using the majority of the CR-48's features by using Chrome on your desktop OS. On the new tab page theres an option to get to the web store.

    So if you can do most of this on your desktop computer, why is a Chrome notebook attractive? Well, its seriously easy to setup and use. Because I use Chrome on my other computers and have a Google account with everything synced (my bookmarks,preferences, etc) setup took a minute... all I had to do was sign into my Google account and everything is synced right over. Great part about living on the web? If I ever lose this computer I never lose any of my data. This video was put out by Google a few months ago to show that:

    Right. I know there are web apps apart from Google (which can be run from any computer). I just assumed that there are apps specifically designed for the CR-48, and I was wondering if THOSE apps are free or not. But you already answered that question, so that's cool.

    Btw, did you know you can include a youtube video in your post here by wrapping the youtube link in [youtube] tags?

    Yeah, just forgot to...

    To answer your question, yes... there are some apps specifically for the CR-48, but none of those apps are available in the Chrome web store (they come pre-installed). They aren't all that major. A simple notebook app, and a Google Talk app... thats about it.

    None of the original links work any more. Any chance this program could be re-posted? Sounds incredibly useful.

    Hey, johndel. Welcome to the ETS Discussion Hall, and sorry there hasn't been much activity here lately. I've been pretty busy, and haven't had time to work on the site.

    As to your comment, yes the Compatibility Sword program written by member Justin White is no longer available at the links he provided. I believe (though I haven't discussed it with him yet) that that is because he removed his websites which was sharing it, though I don't know why he did that. However, after reading your post, since I have the program myself, I simply moved it to a location where you can access it, by clicking on the following link:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8029532/CSword/CSword.exe

    Cheers! Basketball
