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 is not guaranteed to work with every Windows application. If you are unsure if the application that you require is supported, you can search for it in the Browse Apps section of the Wine Application Database. The Wine Wiki contains many resources to get you started or to refer to if you encounter problems with your Windows application.

Installing and Configuring Wine

Wine can be installed from AppCafe™. In Figure 8.5a, the user has performed a search to find the Wine PBI. You should install the version that is correct for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).

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.
