  • PlayOnLinux

    Free Mac Linux BSD Wine FreeBSD Website

    PlayOnLinux (PlayOnMac at http://www.playonmac.com ) is a tool to help Linux (and Mac) users run games and programs for Windows on Linux (or Mac, FreeBSD), via the use of (as a front-end for) Wine. Few games are compatible at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings an accessible and efficient solution to this problem, cost-free and respectful of the free software.
