    Has anyone managed or tried to get xrumer to run inside wine? I really don't like renting windows ded/vps and I bet xrumer would run so much faster and better in a linux environment.

    xrumer will work under wine but better option to install virtualbox and install WinXP.

    explain to me why that would be a better option? I know that most xrumer users use windows server 200{3,8} for it's uptime but if you can run xrumer in wine i don't see why you would want to run it under windows.

    Because xrumer developed for windows and wine not a real windows environment.
