Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Many Linux users have experience with Wine, the application compatibility layer which allows some Windows programs to run on UNIX-like machines. During Ubuntu's Open Week event, Mark Shuttleworth was asked about Wine, and how important he believes it is for the success of Ubuntu.

The only reason I can ever find to use Wine is to waste some time away gambling on Pokerstars. Pokerstars doesn't officially support Wine, but they once released a version of their client that failed to work under Wine and released an updated version a few hours later just to fix the reported problem; nice. There are still a couple of glitches in the client but none of them affect my ability to lose money.
