Wine and Linux

I have been pleasantly surprised that most the Windows programs I have are currently running well under Wine. In the past I would have to try Winetricks or other programs to run my programs in Linux. This is truly of great advantage to me, as I would much rather be using Linux or a Chrome OS system as my main work environment.

Keep up the good work with Ultimate Edition. I use it and Pinguy, and find them both outstanding.

the ./wine project has come a long way:
- it's finally hit v2,0 <BREW>

but - like everything - it's not the end solution,
ie: if it is used in moderation & not in expectation,
- it generally will for for your application.

sure - it does a heap of Games - just not all of 'em.
- the same applies to those Utilities that you like to use.

all in all, I've found a heap of things that don't work,
& yet have been surprised at what Did Work. :!:

it's the YMMV thing, again.
