“These Wine Improvements Sponsored by Google!”

Photoshop and Dragon Naturally Speaking running on Linux? Yep! And all because of Google! Gotta love that!

Google intoxicates Linux users with Wine improvements

“Google software engineer Dan Kegel posted a message to the Wine mailing list last week describing some of the improvements to Wine that Google has sponsored in the past year. These improvements, says Kegel, have substantially improved the Linux compatibility of several popular commercial software applications, including Adobe Photoshop and Dragon Naturally Speaking. Wine is an open-source Windows binary runtime compatibility layer that enables users to run some native Windows applications on Linux and other operating systems with varying degrees of success. Running applications through Wine generally provides a suboptimal experience compared to running the same applications on Windows, but it often works well enough to make it a viable solution for many users.”
