| with zero, but it serves to symbolize the different mindset required for 
| Linux compared to Windows.  



Windows Unix Subsystem finally catches up to Wine

,----[ Quote ]
| This is just some interesting reading you guys might enjoy. It seems, the
| Unix subsystem will give you the ability to create a mixed application able
| to call Win32 and Unix functionality. In effect PSX becomes like wineserver
| and you have to wrap your win32 libs as posix libraries. (sound familure).

| Scott Ritchie, an Ubuntu MOTU, has proposed that WINE be moved into Ubuntu's
| Main repository thereby making it shipping with Ubuntu by default in some
| form.



Does WINE + Linux support more Windows apps than Vista?

,----[ Quote ]
| WINE supports most of the applications which are made for Windows
| 2.0 up to Windows XP. WINE has the ability to run different versions
| of IE, run most of Adobe's products, run World of Warcraft, Half Life
| 2, Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2000 and 97, Visio, Quicken,
|     * Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
