    Phoronix: Support For Running Windows Apps On ARM With Wine

    Right before Wine on Android was shown for running Windows applications on Google's Android operating system, the state of Wine for the ARM architecture was talked about. There's a few different Wine ARM scenarios possible, including the ability to run Win32 binaries on a Linux-based ARM system...

    So now wine is an emulator (run x86 code on arm)

      It's only a small change from "Wine Is Not an Emulator" to "Wine Is Now an Emulator".

        About wine:

        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.

        About emulation:

        When users think of emulators, they think of programs like Dosbox or zsnes. These applications run as virtual machines and are slow, having to emulate each processor instruction. Wine does not do any CPU emulation - hence the name "Wine Is Not an Emulator."

        Wine on non x86 processors:

        Well, it is true that Wine only runs on x86 processors. Unfortunately it will also require quite a lot of work before it runs on other processor architectures.
