LXer: Linux game-time refined with latest Wine

Published at LXer:

Wine, the project that lets Linux users run Windows apps within Linux, has released a major update that fixes a number of bugs and includes 64-bit support. Wine 2.1 includes a new set of icons, a number of fixes for video rendering improving Windows gaming and better font anti-aliasing and handling of desktop link files. Wine has always been a controversial app in the Linux community with purists claiming Wine is exactly what Linux doesn't need a Windows crutch that just undermines claims that Linux can do anything Windows can do. Rather than relying on Wine, the argument goes, Linux users should concentrate on improving the Linux apps that cover the same territory.
