An overview of Winelib, which enables Windows application sources to compile and run on Linux
Ira discusses Wine and Winelib, which make it possible to run some Windows applications on Linux, and to more easily port applications that were originally written for a Windows platform. He'll also touch on other projects that can help an enterprise overcome its Windows dependencies, such as ReactOS (the open source port of Windows NT), MinGW (the port of GCC for Windows programs), and Mono (essentially, Wine for .NET and C#). Ira is currently co-authoring a book for Prentice-Hall, on Wine and Winelib; his co-author is Brian Vincent.
