It's time to create a version of YoWindow for Linux because it already has up to Mac! It would be a good idea to do so.

Yes good idea! Like a lot of my friends we have switch to Linux and miss the little Yo program. A lot of people are unhappy with where Microsoft is heading with W10, there is a huge movement toward Linux, so it is worthwhile I think.

Thanks !

it would be nice to use Yowindow also on Linux. I don't like W10 too.

As YoWindow relys on the Flash-Player for Internet-Explorer (the ActiveX Component) this won't happen in the near future.

As far as i know on Linux there's something called "Wine" where many Windows-programs can be run.

Would you give "Wine" a try and tell us if and how YoWindow runs under Wine / Linux?

I tried Yowindow using wine but with no success. Either wine, winetrick or Playonlinux which enable IE installation up to 8 only, won't work. I wish their was a Linux version. There is a lot of screensavers written for Linux. I don't know if it is possible to use that language for Yo. A lot of people are fed up with windows 10 and there is a significant move toward Linux. It may be worthwhile.
Cheers !
