WineVDM is an open-source compatibility layer that emulates kernel/user/GDI calls with other aspects like windowing being passed off to the host OS. It's a fork of Wine using MAME's 80386 CPU core and MS-DOS Player. As of February 2021, WineVDM is still in its early stages but can run simple games like SkiFree, older Microsoft Office versions, and SimCity. There have been significant improvements since the last release and updated builds can be found at the project Appveyor
