Linux "Between WINE, VMware, BOCHs and ilk - not to mention the renewed focus on virtualisation we're now seeing - we're somewhat spoilt for choice when it comes to running Windows applications on Linux. But what about the other way around? Cygwin aside, there is another way."

We're already spoilt for choice the other way around too. VMware, Bochs and Qemu already run on Windows, and there is a Wine-like product called Line. How does this approach compare to all of these other choices?

From the linked article:

"Building off a concept similar to Java, LINA aims to provide open-source developers the ability to compile applications that will run on all of Windows, MacOS X, and various Unix systems."

So, I believe is not like Wine or like VMWare, its more like a runtime environment for multiple platforms.

Is there another website than http://line.sourceforge.net/ for line? This one seems broken.
