Wine, the Windows “emulator”

Just saw some good news about Wine approaching 1.0 stable release. It remembered me of how capable Wine is now. Some years ago, I would try running an application under Wine and hope it would at least show something and not crash. Nowadays, when I find some Windows application I need to use, I first try running it under Wine and if it does not work as I like, I fall back to QEMU or VMWare. Hopefully, for most applications I have tried, Wine worked just fine.
