Wine] is an application that allows you to create a Windows environment for installing Windows software. This can be useful if your favourite Windows game or productivity application has not been ported to Linux/BSD.

Wine can be installed from AppCafe™. In Figure 8.5a, the user has performed a search to fine the Wine PBI.

NOTE: while Wine indicates that it is for the i386 (32-bit) architecture, you can install it on 32- or 64- bit systems using AppCafe™.

Once installed, an icon for Wine Configuration will be added to the Control Panel and, depending upon your desktop, a desktop icon may be created as well.
