I was just poking around on the forums to see if I could get this to run under Linux as well. It's really about the only other app I'll need to ditch Windows on one of my two desktops. The other is for gaming, so that one might have to be Windows for a while..

So I'm definitely hoping for a port to Linux as well. There are some decent media players for Linux, but none quite as good as MM, in my opinion.

Lol it's a little rude to make an entire thread about this with just a single sentence. They're already planning on making a Linux version eventually, iirc.

I also have the Gold version and would also pay again for a Linux version.
I would also pay upfront if it means you can speed up development.

In the meantime, can you please provide tips to help run MediaMonkey 5 under wine on Linux? For example, it's possible to install MediaMonkey and the app launches, however the menus are cut off and there is a web window that automatically opens and cannot be closed. There are probably some component that can be installed via winetricks that would alleviate the issues. Can you provide any info about which components are needed by the program? Also, can you please remove your extremely old page http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ediaMonkey which has info that's over 10 years old?
