Wine is a Microsoft Windows compatibility layer or program loader capable of running Windows applications on i386 and compatible CPUs. Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop.
Many applications already work, more or less, including versions of Microsoft Office and many games.
Use this port for 32-bit Windows binaries in an i386 environment or 64-bit Windows binaries in an amd64 environment; use emulators/i386-wine for 32-bit Windows binaries in an amd64 environment.
