Wine (originally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.

    While this is great software, its getting to be pointless. Windows is dead, desktop is dying. The ONLY thing anyone will care about soon (if not already) is 'will my android app/game run on it?'. Thats why these guys should be working on a full blown android emulation or abstraction layer for linux. Thats reallyall that matter now, the war is over.

    Wine is really good at everything but games now, and game issues are mostly cause by driver issues.

    Wine development has almost completely stalled recently. Sigh. :(
