Wine is a free and open source software application that aims to allow computer programs written for Microsoft Windows to run on Unix-like operating systems. The name Wine initially was an acronym for WINdows Emulator.Its meaning later shifted to the Wine Is Not an Emulator in order to differentiate the software from other emulators.
Wine also provides a software library, known as Winelib, against which developers can compile Windows applications to help port them to Unix-like systems.
