    Hi everyone

    Got a powerG4 and I'm trying to download software called Mansion (gambling blackjack, poker etc) when I download it comes uI click save its downloading as something like DOS-Excutable it downlaods very quick to quick as the software is about 50mb but when I double click on the file it says I don't have an application to open it when it downloads it comes up on my desktop as a little white sheet with the corner bent over it comes up as

    NetinstallMansionpoker.exe

    .exe files are Windows executables, and can only be opened on a comp running Windows. :(

    On the G4 you could run Windows through Virtual PC but it is slow and pricey. I also do not think it is supported anymore. The other option would be an Intel Mac with Windows through bootcamp or parallels.

    You will need to find a company that uses a web based, java based or Mac OS supported gambling program. Though I would recommend against online gambling.

    You can download game widgets

    As to gambling sites, most of them
    - if it's free, it's spyware or trojans
    - if it's real gambling, they stacked odds so you lose money on average.
