Microsoft windows compatibility layer (meta-package)
916B
http://www.winehq.org/
Description:

Wine is a compatibility layer for running windows applications on linux. applications are run at full speed without the need of cpu emulation. wine does not require microsoft windows, however it can use native system dll files in place of its own if they are available.

this meta-package always depends on the default version of wine.

4 While I prefer to run Linux native apps, some Windows apps don't have an equivalent Linux app; some are needed for compatibility in work environments. So I find a dozen or so Windows apps that I need. WINE makes that happen, but not all Windows apps run; some run with partial functionality and some will not run at all. So it is very useful for many Windows apps. I wouldn't want to be without it.

4 Wine does a fine job for allowing a user to run Windows software in Linux without installing a VM (virtual machine), but as stated by others...it does not run all Windows software and not as fast as in native Windows OS. It is also difficult to use when trying to install Windows software. I suggest also installing "PlayOnLinux" to ease the pain. PlayOnLinux combined with WINE makes Windows software install almost trouble free. I run MS Office 2007 (Enterprise) - not all the extra functions work but the main components: Word, Publisher, Exel, and such perform fine in most cases. Many games install and run fine, and I have installed over 55 games not listed on the PlayOnLinux or Wine websites. A useful piece of software when you have to run certain Windows software that isn't available in Linux.

Apart from the usual (even in windows) TOD_PC.ini file alteration, located in the my computer folder to turn off PostRenderEffects, this went smoothly. However in the 64bit version of mint, some of the sound is missing (menu music and ingame)... ...Also of note if you refresh the drive list in wine configuration the game can no longer see the cd , changing it back to D: should resolve but I haven't tested this yet. MANY MANY thanks to the Wine team for providing compatibility supirior to Windows 7 Ultimate with Compatibility Mode installed :O :D!

3 It makes me think of the training wheels on bikes. If you're not a gamer, embrace the full Linux experience and cut the crap. I tried Wine and PlayonLinux, back when I decided to keep MS Word inside a Mint machine, because I'm so damn used to it. Not worth the trouble. The installation processes were a pain, and the results were never fully stable. Both W. and P. ended up breaking under pressure, or after updates or upgrades. It's too much effort that should be redirected to integral Linux solutions.

4 Wine does a pretty good job at running Windows programs when needed. I would like to see better gaming support so the move to Linux would be complete.

5 Wine is a great compatabilty tool for those Windows apps that are still needed. It doesn't run all Windows software but it runs more and more with each release.
