I found a nice description of how to use vmware-mount.pl in Linux.
The other day I found that PlayOnLinux now has a script to install Chrome. It works for me, but the main problem I have is that it doesn’t support https.
I had trouble today where my control keys quite working. It is the first time it has happened, and I haven’t the problem again since. I found the solution here, and I plan to keep it handy just in case.
I finally had enough of trying to run Word 2007 on Wine. It worked several times, but every time I really needed to use it, it would fail to start. It would just hang on the splash screen. Even more annoying was that the splash screen stayed on top obstructing my view of other windows.

I found a couple of forums discussing options for alternatives for Microsoft’s OneNote. I don’t really have time to research all of these, but I wanted to note them in case I had a chance to come back later and spend some time researching them more.
Here are the forums:

- Ubuntu Forums: Is there a Linux equivalent to Microsoft Onenote?
This option seemed to be the most popular. I have used this a little, but I haven’t got into it that much.
This is a KDE application.
This one looks interesting, but it doesn’t look like it is WYSIWYG. You might have to learn some formatting features.
Now, this one I have obviously used. But, I would consider this more if you want to share your notes.
Stands for hierarchical notebook.
