Hi Norman,

That is a very interesting question that you have
asked. However, it does have a dissapointing
answer....not exactly.

Unfortunately, at present, an MS --> Linux Encarta
based program does not exist. But that is not to say
that the information does not. It could be possible to
use Netsape (mozilla) under Linux, with Apache to
produce a web-based version of "Encarta" (Hey...I
might try that :-).

Of course, I would really love to see your school
switch to using Linux. Of course you could use WINE to
run Encarta from Linux...... (just an idea).

I hope this has helped answer your question,
