'''Wine''' (an acronym for '''<u>W</u>ine <u>I</u>s <u>N</u>ot an <u>E</u>mulator''') is an open-source [[compatibility layers|compatibility layer]] for POSIX-compliant systems such as Unix-like operating systems (Linux, BSDs, macOS, etc.) to run programs originally created for Windows. First developed by Alexandre Julliard, it's now sponsored by the corporate entity CodeWeavers, who use it as a base to create an enhanced, proprietary version known as [https://www.codeweavers.com/products/ CrossOver]. Wine is especially useful for older Windows games, as compatibility with these is typically higher than if the same game were run on modern Windows versions.
