Hey, thanks for sharing this info ! I actually found it while doing a google search about running e sword on Zorin, which is the Linux flavor I am currently trying out. Until a few days ago I didn't know anything about Linux, but I decided to get into it because I want to be rid of Win 7 before the updates expire. It's working fine for me btw - not trying the multi-boot thing though - lol.
There aren't really any Windows programs I want to be able to run on Linux except for e sword, so when I get to that part of the change-over I'm going to give it a shot. :-)
