Wine makes Windows application run on Linux

Friday, May 29, 2009

Wine this is the thing which i came accross when i was searching about runnning windows applications on linux. Developers might have come accross other application which supports windows applications to run on linux. I dont have exact idea about this particular tool.

Wine is a translation layer (a program loader) capable of running Windows applications on Linux and other POSIX compatible operating systems. Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop.

Developers were migrating windows applications on to linux environment by creating their replica software on linux environment example is MONO which is same as Microsoft .net. Windows applications are very well designed so that user can play around with no dificulties in understanding. But linux lovers who really want to try windows programs on linux environment can give a try at this.

The Wine project started in 1993 as a way to support running Windows 3.1 programs on Linux. Bob Amstadt was the original coordinator, but turned it over fairly early on to Alexandre Julliard, who has run it ever since. Over the years, ports for other Unixes have been added, along with support for Win32 as Win32 applications became popular.
