It is also a useful tool for the Wiki Project to analyze, plan, develop, and revise wine-related material. It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes. User: Ian Spackman - no expert in the language or in the wine, but there are billions of articles to translate and I offer my services as the first of the millions of collaboraters LAMM707 will need!
There comes a time in every alternative OS user's life when they decide they'd actually like to use a program that typically runs on Microsoft Windows. It happens less often (in my experience) as a Mac user, but eventually some tantalizing gaming experience or obscure utility will call across the void, and there's no way your 128GB SSD has enough room for a Boot Camp copy of Windows.

(Note: this listing is for the official release of Wine, which only provides source code.
If you want a version of Wine that is packaged specifically for OS X, then use Winebottler, available here.) Wine (originally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, OS X, and BSD.
