"TuxArena: Please tell us, what is Bordeaux? How is it different from Wine, and what does it have in common with Wine?

"Bordeaux is a *simple* GTK front-end to assist in installing a limited set of applications. Bordeaux also comes with a Cellar Manager, e.g. Bottle Manager. A Cellar or Bottle is just a nice name for a wineprefix by the way, Bordeaux bundles a custom version of Wine, the build includes some hacks that may help a limited number of applications run a little better then they normally would. As an example we build the unsupported DIB engine and Pulse Audio support in our release.

"TuxArena: When and why did you start putting up Bordeaux?

"Bordeaux was started and written by Steven Edwards as a front-end to winetricks in late 2007, at that time winetricks didn’t have a GUI. With each release new features have been added like application installs and the Cellar Manager."
