Finally, Wine is out after maturing for 15 years

wine 1 stable release

Wine – the program that lets you run Windows Applications in Linux was finally released as Version 1 today. Wine was under rigorous development since last 15 years and had never been released as stable version.


With Wine1.0 stable release, now you can run thousands of Windows Applications directly on Linux that includes – MS Office, PhotoshopCS2, Lotus Notes, Half-Life, Command & Conquer etc.


Chances are, Wine is already available in your installed Linux distribution. All you need is to upgrade it to latest, stable version. Download wine from here.


Still, you may face occasional glitches in running Windows Applications in Linux through Wine. But, then Windows Vista don’t let you run all Windows applications either!


Three cheers for Wine.
