Dev 5.9 (new) & Stable 5.0 / 22-05-2020
Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility-layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant systems such as Linux, macOS & BSD.
Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine, Wine translates Windows API-calls into POSIX-calls on-the-fly, thus eliminating performance and memory penalties and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.
