Wine (recursive abbreviation of “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer that can run Windows programs on Linux, macOS, and BSD. The wine itself does not require Windows support because it is a completely free alternative to the Windows API, 100% non-Microsoft source code software, but Wine can choose to use native Windows DLLS if they are available.
In addition, Wine provides a development kit for porting Windows source code to Unix, and a program loader that allows developers to easily modify many Windows programs running on x86 Unix, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X. And Solaris.
Recently, the official website of Wine released a 3.8 development version, which adds the infrastructure for writing kernel driver tests, supports displaying file attributes in the shell browser, and supports COM aggregation in UrlMon and so on.
