Wine 0.9.9 is out

What is Wine?

Wine is a project to allow a PC running a Unix-like operating system and the X Window System to run x86 programs for Microsoft Windows. Alternately, those wishing to port a Windows application to a Unix-like system can compile it against the Wine libraries.

The name was derived from the recursive acronym “Wine Is Not an Emulator” (it implements a compatibility layer), although some have used the unofficial expansion “Windows Emulator”. Although the forms “WINE” and “wine” of the name are sometimes used, the developers have agreed on the now correct “Wine”.
