Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
The Wine software is being ported to Google's mobile operating system by Alexandre Julliard, the original developer behind the project. Julliard, who is employed by CodeWeavers to work on Wine, briefly showed off Wine on Android on Sunday in Brussels.
According to a report from Phoronix, performance was horrendously slow, but this was simply because Wine was running on an emulated Android environment, rather than on an actual device: "Julliard uses an Apple MacBook for development of his software that runs on Linux to run Windows software... Android was emulated for his demo."
