Wine is now distributed under the X11 license! Features DirectDraw restructuration, many bug fixes merged from the Corel tree, On-demand loading of built-in dlls, and much more.

"Wine is a program which allows running Microsoft Windows programs (including DOS, Windows 3.x and Win32 executables) on Unix. It consists of a program loader which loads and executes a Microsoft Windows binary, and a library that implements Windows API calls using their Unix or X11 equivalents. The library may also be used for porting Win32 code into native Unix executables."
