New Wine: Running Windows Music and Sound Applications Under Wine 1.2


Wine runs many Windows programs nicely these days, including more and more serious music applications. Dave profiles some of those applications running under the latest & greatest Wine 1.2

On July 16 the Wine development team announced the public release of Wine 1.2, the "WINdows Emulator", aka "Wine Is Not an Emulator". I hadn't been keeping up with the project, so I decided to revisit it to see how Wine's audio/MIDI support had evolved. Past releases enabled a variety of small and mid-sized sound applications to run, but would the latest & greatest be able to meet the demands of at least some of the more popular music programs for Windows ? Read on to learn the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about running Windows music applications in Linux under the latest Wine.
