[Wine 1.0 Releases Candidate Released]

| This is release 1.0-rc1 of Wine, a free implementation of Windows on Unix.
| This is the first release candidate for Wine 1.0. Please give it a
| good testing to help us make 1.0 as good as possible. In particular
| please help us look for apps that used to work, but don't now. See
| http://wiki.winehq.org/PlatinumRegressionHunt for details.


The making of Wine (how to make Windows apps merrier with Linux)

,----[ Quote ]
| Flash forward to today. It's been the better part of a decade and Microsoft
| has not been toppled by anyone's reckoning. However it did release Vista -
| perhaps the most hated Windows operating system of all time (though it's hard
| to beat Windows ME on that count). Enterprises badly want alternatives to
| Windows. Desktop Linux has come a long way since 1999, too. and (who knew?)
| the Mac has become the ultra chic, must-have PC. The enterprise has its
| alternatives - if it can only get those mission critical Windows apps to work
| flawlessly. Wine, in its commercial form, has been doing so for years.
| So, in 2008, the 1.0 version will hit the streets and the timing could not be
| more perfect. White admits that not every Windows application will work
| flawlessly on Wine, but many a critical one for the enterprise has been
| specifically optimized.



Wine is Getting Good

| Wine is at version 0.9.47. As it nears version 1.0, it's becoming clear that
| the goals of the project are being met.
