What is Wine?

Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. Think of it as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs.

Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available.
