[News] Linux, Unlike Windows, Runs Both Linux and Windows Programs

Hash: SHA1

So you want to run windows programs on Linux?

| My point of view in this matter is quite simple. If you wish to run windows 
| programs then use windows. If you wish to run Linux and windows programs then 
| either use an emulator, wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) or a virtual machine. 
| If none of those solutions are suitable then stop thinking about using Linux. 
| Stop complaining that you will use Linux if only it could run this program. 
| Either use the operating system the program was designed for or use an 
| alternative program designed for the operating system you wish to use.

| Just because windows programs do not work on Linux does not mean that it is 
| not ready for the desktop. Under normal usage Linux has no problems and is 
| much better than windows in many ways. Wanting to run a different operating 
| systems programs under Linux can in no way shape or form be considered normal 
| usage.    


Wine might have better Windows compatibility than Vista.
