Just thought you might like to know that BC2 runs great on Linux (Ubuntu distro: a Debian variant) in a WINE (WINE Is Not an Emulator) window
I've been running it for about a month now, and use it to back up my USB sticks (FAT32) and transfer files between work(Windows/NTFS) who has BC2 licences and home(Linux/ext2-3). I simply installed it straight off the website: even the various filters work fine, e.g. the Picture Viewer. The only thing I could not get to work is trying to use a keyboard shortcut if it requires the CTRL key (which may be a WINE problem: I haven't checked since it's not a big concern). Everything else is fine.
Regards & thanks,
