Features of Wine

Hello all, I am doing a project in school on Wine. In which, I have been assigned to research Wine's feature. Looking at "" they stat one of the feature is "Desktop in a box or mixable screen". I was wondering if anyone could explain what this means. Thank you.

I'm pretty sure that this is referring to the different ways that wine can interact with the window manager (there are 3):

- Managed: Each window from a Wine app is its own window within your Window Manger, and receives a linux style title bar
- Unmanaged: Each window from a wine app is its own window, but has a windows style title bar (i think?)
-Desktop: Creates one "mother"/"desktop" window in linux that contains all of your win9x windows. They can not leave this "mother" window.

The program winesetuptk lets you set your config file for each mode, and has picture previews for them (thats where I got my descriptions from). Take a look at that

Hope this helps
