Linux, Windows applications and PlayOnLinux

As stated before, I am not much of a gamer. However, today I had to install Windows game on one of my computers – so I installed WINE. WINE is a very fine Windows software platform for Linux computers – it allows you to install a lot of Windows software natively within Linux, without any Windows license. As always, it’s available in the Ubuntu Software Center on your Ubuntu computer. Now when searching for WINE in the software Center, I found another excellent piece of software that can act as a front-end for WINE: it solves some hassle with shortcuts, once that the Windows application has been installed with WINE, and it does much more than that.  It’s called PlayOnLinux. I don’t know all the details about the software yet, but if you’re trying to get a problematic Windows application fully working in Ubuntu (or any other Linux Desktop), you should really dive into PlayOnLinux. the most recent version is available on the PlayOnLinux site, a somewhat older version is available in the Ubuntu Software Center. I quote the site: PlayOnLinux is a piece of sofware which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and softwares designed to run with Microsoft®’s Windows®.Check it out!
