  Natural Language Game Programming with Inform 7

You don't know how much I would LOVE to use Inform 7. The only problem is that it's only available for WinXX and Mac. Some of us are Linux only without much (or any) access to those other platforms. I'm going to maybe try and get the WinXX version to run under wine but am not confident about that.

    I'm primarily a Linux user too; what I ended up doing was just running a basic Win2k image (converted from a Ghost image produced by a friend) under vmplayer in ubuntu. Works fine, since it has no specific hardware requirements.

    I understand as I run Linux too. The Mac and Windows clients are both volunteer projects and so too must be the Linux port. So there's a good opportunity for any aspiring IDE authors.

    My understanding is that wine can work. There is a very preliminary project to port the IDE using Haskell (http://www.blancolioni.org/inform7/) although wine is still required to run the Inform compiler itself.

    The best place to get up-to-date information on I7 is to visit rec.arts.int-fiction. Right now everything is moving so far there aren't web pages to keep up.
