Genelec GLM on Linux - Alternative Solution

Genelec lovers.

I do not see GENELEC offering any LINUX versions for the GLM software anytime soon.....

I love LINUX and I have finally managed to get GLM 1.0 series working on a Linux machine.
I have 2 x 8260A angels and I craved to move away from a Windows machine...

The key here is that WINE does not allow USB interaction while emulating windows software. So though you may be able to install the GLM on the linux machine but it will not recognise the speakers as the USB cannot communicate to the software through a WINE emulation. UNLESS you are a super guru on coding. I tried my best and got lost in the binary....

The alternative is to have a VIRTUALBOX and have a WINXP running and dedicate the USB for GENELEC NETWORK ADAPTER.

This works like a dream.

Any comments and feedback, please let me know.
