The Windows 7 VM I've been using to run MCP Express hasn't stopped working,
but it recently started telling me I need to register to regain full
functionality.  I haven't figured out what functionality has been limited
yet.  Its desktop now has a black background with "Unregistered Version" in
the lower right hand corner.

Has anyone managed to get MCP Express running with Wine on Linux?  I've
heard of people getting OS/2200 Express running under Wine, but it doesn't
have the Windows services MCP Express does.

I might consider registering a copy of Windows to run under VirtualBox if
Microsoft would stop trying to make the user interface look worse with each
new version.  I don't mind Windows 7, but newer versions look absolutely
horrid.  Even the new Office 365 on my Windows 7 PC at work looks terrible.
