I tried to run ConnectedText with Wineskin Winery. It worked, but I found it rather unsatisfactory. The application looked rather ugly because it substituted strange fonts for menus, toolbars, etc. I also could not make it to recognize different styles. Even though it worked and even though I think the font issue could perhaps be solved (with a lot of tinkering), I deleted it again. Wineskin Winery cannot deny its heritage, it seems to me: Linux (or Unix).
I find Parallels superior. Python also works in it the way it is supposed to.
