    Firstly I had to turn antivirus of as it saw Xiphos as malicious. Secondly I did not manage to get as far as reading the bible. My language (finnish) was not found through online scan. The program did not recognize the downloaded zip file. Finally I decided to settle for an english bible but still the program stated that I chose not to install any bibles. Usability of this program makes me wanna cry.

    I have also used E-sword, and it is an excellent option for reading the Word of God as well, but one thing hindering me from using it more often, was the displaying of Greek [Koine] letters and their sizes. Upon installing Greek bibles and tools in Xiphos, I was more pleased at its way of being able to read those.

    I am running Linux as a dual port on my Win 7 netbook. This Bible software is a snap to install and add modules to. My only problem is that the left side of the Xiphos window is cut off - I can't read the left panel content. Anyone know how to address this?
