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.

I use wine

Not a lot, but regularly. I run Photoshop 7 and Artrage under wine, mostly to check out the way they handle certain features when I'm designing something for krita. I've tried to run Corel Paint, too, but that doesn't work, unfortunately.

I used to use wine for my tax software, but that's linux native, these days, in the Netherlands.

I tried to run the app we were developing at my previous workplace under wine because we did not have Windows licenses for the training course laptop and still needed to give the training. But the application (borland C++ and vcl) didn't run...
