What resources would I need to convert a win app to run in linux - not wine
What I mean is, if I know the guy who wrote the program for windows, would I be able to take his original code and compile it for linux?
This is a needed, work specific program, that I'd rather just be able to run natively.
I don't mean to be vague, I suppose I'm asking more theoretically.
I'm not exactly a newbie, but I'm no developer, either. I'm approaching it with the thought that if it's just down to the code, it ought to be able to be done.
Am I right here, or should I just mess around with wine?
If it's possible, I'd like to give it shot, if nothing but for the learning experience.
