Wine 0.9.33

Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. Think of Wine 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. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris.

Changelog:

  • Many Direct3D fixes and performance improvements.
  • More comctl32 tests and some bug fixes.
  • Compatibility improvements in cmd.exe.
  • Still more fixes to builtin OLE.
  • Support for process control on Solaris.
  • Lots of bug fixes.

Yah but it only had the ability to add a bunch of virus files to his home directory (like my documents in windows) an answer to an earlier question - no it cannot go to the / or base directory and muck up system files because those have permissions that you should -never- give to wine. Also, you can even limit wine to just it's own directory, and just mess up your wine install. And just one other thing..the only widely reported time of this really happening..the guy did it on purpose..
