Finally a Wine 1.0?

by @ 4:22 pm. Filed under General Linux, Linux News

Things are looking good for folks wanting to switch to Linux without having to give up their Windows apps. Wine 1.0 is scheduled for a release in June. What does this mean?

Well, one of the primary focuses of this release is to work well with Photoshop. This is something that we’ve known for a couple of years, ever since I put together the Request an App Survey for Novell in January of 2006 (results here). Without question, the number one requested app was Photoshop. Apparently, for this reason, Google has provided some funding for the Wine folks.

Another hangup for people switching to Linux seems to be gaming support. I’d guess that the 1.0 release of Wine would likely support more games than it does now, or at least better support for the current list.

What will the Wine 1.0 release mean? Very likely, I would guess, more Windows users moving to Linux. Which is “A Good Thing.”

    Wine has been out for years! How is it that it’s only at revision 1 ?
    Did I miss something?
