Wine 2.0 lands: It's not Soylent for booze but more Windows apps on Linux and Mac OS

I'll have a copy running tonight on personal machine. Will test it against the primary reason I have it. As I've been given to understand, Direct3D has had a fair bit of uplift, but Dx10 and Dx11 aren't anywhere near done. WoW will be able to test that bit. And if I can get my SO's copy of Overwatch to install and run I'll have another bit to install.

Wine will happily run quite a fair number of things up to and including Office 2010 Visio without issues in my case. There *is* some witchcraft around DLLs that lie outside of the standard windows install, but overall I've found in the last 5 years many of the apps I've "just tried" worked quite well out of the box.

Look up winetricks if you're going to give it a spin, but *READ* before you stuff all sorts of crap in.

Beer to the winedevs for accomplishment.
