    I intend to buy a Acer Aspire One with LINUX in order to uese it as a language dicionary. The dictionary I have is available for PC = .exe and MAc = .app

    The first question: WIll any of those run on Linux?

    Secondly: On my Mac I can easily toggle the keyboard for different languages. Is that complicated in Linux?

    The easiest thing is to buy a Mac laptop, but they are bigger and heavier.

    There are lots of IME packages that work called SCIM.
    I personally use the Anthony Japanese IME.
    I believe you can change the to your preferred keyboard shortcut to activate the IME for most IMEs, I know it can be done for Anthony.

    As for you Dictionaries for PC and MAC, won't work. Probably don't need them.
