simple definitions..

Lo all,

These are very simple but very annoying questions that have been in my mind. I thought i'd ask them and ask for simple brief replies if you all may =)

I'm getting confused between the packages Apache2, Php, httpd (2.0.46), and php-apache2 (4.3.3-rc1). Fine, Apache2 is the actual web server, php is php... but what are the httpd, and the php-apache2 packages about?

what is the difference between Wine, WineX 3.1, and Codeweaver's Crossover ?

(slightly off topic/slack) if anyone can remember, i heard that you don't need to use click n run under Lindows, but can use another program similar to checkinstall, which Debian uses. Can anyone remember the name of that proggy?

Thanks alot

Wine is the general windows api support it is the first Wine and the primary Wine it is general windows support. Winex is the wine code taken by a third part (transgaming) and changed so that it has directx stuff and all around is trying to make a gaming version of wine. Codeavers make crossover office, it is based on the wine code, but is made with a gui launcher and is made mainly for office applications (ms office, corel, etc.) the gaming one will rarely run office stuff, and the office one rarely runs games, then wine as is generall can do a lot of each, but not as much as the specialised ones. usually the specialised ones will backport a lot of there changes to the main Wine source though so eventually it will catch up, plus it continues to develop and the third parties often retake code.
