What is a good Wine front end program?


Hello,

I remember there used to be a program that acted like a add/remove programs menu for Wine showing you all the programs you have installed in Wine without having to go to the .wine C_Drive folder. I forget the names of them and which ones are the better ones.

I know the old one was dropped and a new dev team picked it up and renamed it but I forgot what it was called. If anyone could tell me that would be great.

I use both CrossOver and WINE. Interestingly--out of the box--some things run on one and not the other. I gather that the Codeweavers team can't offer some things because of licensing issues---but that the more amorphous WINE community can get away with it. I am not clear on exactly what the issues are.

For what they officially support, CrossOver is excellent.
