Wine 0.9.54

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.

I still use wine on some programs from my Windows days, but they are not new programs and so a lot of the advances the wine team are making, cool though they are, don't help me really. But I think it's good work they do, essentially 'freeing' Windows.

I used to use wine on my Linux box for maybe a year. I was taking work home, and had this silly little app that I used at work and needed it at home too. Wine did the job. Haven't used it in quite a while, though.
