LXer: First 'stable' Wine puts Windows apps on Linux

Published at LXer:

The makers of Wine claim that version 1.0 is the first such "stable" release and have said that although compatibility is not perfect, thousands of applications are reported to "work very well." Member and former president of Linux Australia Jonathon Oxer told that the Wine project is "an attempt to make Windows irrelevant." "Essentially, it's an effort to supplant the underlying operating system layer and allow Windows software to run on a Linux platform without requiring Windows to be installed," he said.
