Windows After roughly 12 years of work, the Wine Project is about to take its widely used Windows translation layer to a place it has not been in all that time: beta. Wine Project leader Alexandre Julliard, who has worked on the software nearly since its beginning in 1993 and maintained it since 1994, said in an interview yesterday that the beta release is "a matter of days away." He has since updated that forecast and said it would be released on Tuesday, October 25th.

Bullshit. I quite happily used it over the summer to run a jet engine simulator for a project. Some of the menus were a bit weird, but it was entirely usable. Saved me quite a few trips to the lab, and dozens of hours in front of a Windows machine.

Agreed, I've used wine to run several windows applications, it'll run quite a few programs from office suites to games.
