Allows you tu install several WINE versions (so if the app wont work with one version,it will work with another :D ). I use it Warcraft3(DotA)+Garena+RGC and other applications like Foobar2000 and MS Office
I've had more success installing Windows games with PlayOnLinux than any other tool. It allows you to install and test any version of wine without using a command line. So far more than 40 of my Windows games work!
A very good frontend for wine- especially for new users. It makes the process of installing some of the software that can only be found on the Windows platform. For example, there is still no serious chess game software in Linux, but with this utility I was able to install 'Chessbase' applications on my beloved Mint's Cinnamon desktop.
Useless. Synaptic shows it as installed but despite logging in-out again, re-booting and looking in the menu editor it won't appear in the menu. If I can't start it, it's useless. Using Nadia with cinnamon.
Most things don't work: sims 3, sonic fan remix, google crome, poke oak, ms office, IE and all things on the launcher. They need to fix this imediently, this is not a finished product it is more like an alpha prototype! Seriously just look at the code for pets sack and then convet it to linuxs win sucks and I hate it.
Pretty easy interface to work with -compared with Wine-. However, it's still just a front end means that software compatibility depends on Wine. I assure you however that POL would make installing Windows Apps much easier than before.
The Software is excellent, but unfortunatelly to have the very latest verion I had to uninstall the package, and go to playonlinux webpage and follow octellot installation path to have latest version running which solves a graphic problem for 3D graphic recognition.
Useless when one cannot find the installed application. Can't see why LM11 hasn't got a folder search function built into the file/folder explorer. No point in keeping LM on my machine if I can't find/run the apps I need. Waste of time.
Keeping in mind emulation is never as flawless at the real thing. I love this program! I pretty much use it for office 2007 suite so far. To install I just used the same instructions on playonlinux website for the newest version of ubuntu, worked no problems so far...
