Wine 1.9.24 released. How to install Wine 1.9.24 (Stable) via PPA on Ubuntu 16.10 and Ubuntu 16.04 Systems. Using Wine, users can run Windows software on Ubuntu.
Wine (originally an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.
