This article is from the WINE WINdows Emulator FAQ, by Dave Gardner email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Some CD-ROM archives of Internet sites, notably those from Walnut Creek
that archive ftp.cdrom.com and sunsite.unc.edu, may include some versions
of Wine on their CD releases. However, the age of these distributions
should always be questioned, as the 'snapshot' of the ftp site may have
been taken anywhere from 1-4 months (or more) prior to the CD's pressing
Your best bet to get the very latest distribution of Wine, if you do not
have your own Internet account, is to find a friend who does have an
Internet account, and have him/her ftp the necessary file(s) for you.
If you have an email account on a BBS that can reach the Internet through
a gateway, you may be able to use 'email ftp' to get the Wine release sent
to you; check with your BBS system operator for details.
If you are running a BBS that is not connected to the Internet but does
offer the Wine distribution for download, and would like to be listed in
this FAQ, please forward such information to the FAQ author/maintainer as
listed in question 7.2.
