Running Jeskola Buzz Tracker on Linux
The ultimate insult is when MS upgrades its OS and alienates old software that its users rely on. Buzz is a one in a million program that's too weird to remake and too good to let die. It was made for Windows 98, which appears to be most of it's problem. It's like having the greatest race car driver and the slowest race car with a worthless pit crew.
How to make it work: (thanks to flavor8.com)
It's advisable to to save early and safe often. Occasionally adding a machine to your song will crash Buzz. Note this has always been the case and is not due to Wine or Linux. Please leave a bug report here if you find a machine which does so.
Note that Buzz does support direct HD audio output as well, in MS PCM Wav of coarse.
