    IE6 on OSX, no virtualisation. Nice.



    What will they think of next? I actually managed to post this from IE6/OSX and it asked me if I wanted to Ink a reply Wink

    Presumably it is something to do with the base font, or default font. Whenever I go on Channel 9 on one of my other computers it is in Times New Roman.

    The font handling is bizarre, this is not Quartz based code, it is X11 running with the Quartz-WM, so the font-handling sucks - big time. And it flashes like it is repainting - a lot, but then it is only beta. I guess I could go get the fonts, but to be honest I am not *that* bothered.

    I've always liked the idea of Wine, but for some reason the reality just doesn't match up to the picture I have in my head, I can obviously run all of this stuff in Parallels now - but I just thought I would give it a try.

    Regardless of how badly it looks whilst it is running though, it *is* running - you have to have some respect for the guys that have re-implemented that much of the Win32 api.
