I don't have Windows on my netbook, so I was wondering, is there a way to watch a Fritztrainer (or whatever they call the video DVDs available from ChessBase) video on Linux?
Try Wine, maybe it could successfully install chessbase and run it, but I doubt it. Unfortunately, chess resources in linux are pretty limited.
I mean, is there no native way? Because Wine is not something I prefer :)
I don't think so, because fritz trainer videos are specifically synced with the chessbase or fritz GUIs so that the variations that come up on the video appear on your GUI. That is, the moves and the board aren't shown on the video itself, but on your GUI.
I think you can watch the raw videos, but that wouldn't mean much without seeing what's going on the board.
Those vids aren't that great anyway. As for me I'll never go back to using Windows as my main OS. When faced with Ubuntu vs. Windows, I'll always choose Ubuntu. There isn't a whole lot (besides PC gaming) that I can do in Windows that I can't do in Ubuntu (and don't even get me started about system design). Usually I can do more. I see blue skies.
Also, I don't think netbooks (of any OS) are designed for handling heavy programs like ChessBase. It's usually just for accessing the internet and word-processing isn't it?
Sorry, but there's no way to use chessbase products under Linux computer. I use debian + Shredder classic perfectly integrated with wine (only font problems but not with ubuntu). what about you ?
