Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Linux is a great operating system. It's reliable and compact, but does it lack the ability to run the more popular Windows-based applications. Now, Wine Rack offers offers a ray of hope for cross-platform application support for fans of Suse's implementation of Linux. It's a software package containing a number of programs that emulate the Windows environment, and thanks to the inclusion of CrossOver Office and WineX, a wide variety of applications and games software will now run happily in a Linux world.

From the outset it's only fair that not every Windows app can be made to run, and sometimes it's necessary to do a lot of fiddling to get something to come close to running properly. However, for the larger apps--including Microsoft's Office and Adobe's Photoshop everything seems to run fairly smoothly. Games are even more fickle than productivity apps but there's a goodly selection supported by WineX and it makes a fair job of running them at reasonable speed though it's always wise to check before going through the rigours of installation. It's also a fair bet that the very latest games might present you with some serious issues as WineX is a constantly evolving open-source product and subject to constant flux and change. --Chris Russell
