WineXS Simple graphical environment to configure Wine

Posted 08-18-2009 at 06:07 AM by sridhar11

Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix.Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code,however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a
development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.
