Description

This article is from the WINE WINdows Emulator FAQ, by Dave Gardner dagar@ix.netcom.com with numerous contributions by others.

3.1: Under what hardware platform(s) and operating system(s) will Wine run?

Wine is being developed specifically to run on the Intel x86 class of CPUs
under certain UNIXes that run on the x86 platform. UNIXes currently being
tested for Wine compatibility include Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD and Unixware,
and there is now support for SCO OpenServer 5. The Wine development team
hopes to attract the interest of other commercial UNIX and UNIX clone
vendors as well.

There are side efforts underway to port Wine to the Alpha and OS/2
platforms. You can find out more information about the OS/2 port at:
