Wine stands for “Wine is not an emulator” and it is an open source command-line software that’s capable of translating Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly for integrating Windows applications into your Linux/UNIX desktop.

It provides a software library, known as Winlib, which allow developers to compile Windows applications and port it to Unix-like systems.

Wine is the application you need to solve that problem because it will let you use any Windows program when using GNU/Linux.

The application is not only supported on the Linux platform, as it is also compatible with other POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as BSD (FreeBSD, PC-BSD), OpenSolaris, and Mac OS X.
