個人發一下牢騷:Why “Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English 4th Updated Edition” is a MUST for ESL/EFL users的原因除了大家所說的外 最重要的是LDOCE4 v2 is “the one and only one” monolingual English dirtnoiacy application which is Linux-Compatible on the market( Feb 2007 ).其實手頭上已經在用一堆英 字典,身為Linux IT人員加上English is the de facto language of the computer industry( 節錄自Macmillan English Dictionary )與English is the lingua franca of the world and Internet,無奈之下只好去買LDOCE 4 v2。為此輪流寫信到Macmillan, Oxford, Cambridge, HarperCollins, Merriam-Webster, Random House全部抱怨一次,相信不久 來所有英英字典都是MS Windows/Linux/UNIX compatible。在Linux上裝了Wine之後 除了Merriam-Webster International unabridge 3rd edition與Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary 3rd edition( Resource Pack )可運作正常外,其它都會死當 無法模擬( 八成是因其他字典軟體使用Quic kTime, illuminator等search engine的關係 ),真是給他圈圈叉叉。
