No seriously though. Can I run these portable apps using linux? Currently I'm on SuSe 10... If it is possible, how do I go about it? Linux doesn't handle .exe in the same way as windows hmm.

Cheers,
Gabe

No

They're Windows-only for now. There's actually been surprisingly little interest in getting them working on Linux and Mac... at least developer-wise.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Use WINE.

If you install WINE, you can run the applications. Just install wine, then associate .exe files with it (or just do it from the commandline--switch to the folder with PortableFirefox.exe and type wine PortableFirefox.exe). That's what I did when I was using Ubuntu. Worked surprisingly well, too.

As for native Linux versions of the apps, no. You could probably write a shell script to do it, though--there is a Linux version of Firefox, after all.

Did you have any tips on getting Medal Of Honour:Pacific Assault working in linux? At the moment I'm still stuck on how to instal direct X 9. Any tips would be appreciated.
