    Phoronix: Wine 1.1.44 Brings All Sorts Of Changes

    Two weeks ago Wine 1.1.43 was released and it brought many Direct3D fixes, among other improvements, but this Friday Wine 1.1.44 has superseded that release. Wine 1.1.44 does carry more Direct3D 9/10 work, but it also packs a fair amount of other changes...

    Great work Wine developers! Today I've been really surprised how well MS Office 2007 worked on Wine. It's speed is just like on Windows XP and all the _mostly used_ functions just work without problems and now it's integration to Linux desktop (KDE) is really trivial.

      I had seen a benchmark a while back which was testing office2007 and photoshop and both were faster under Wine rather than vista

        I really looking forward to Wine vs Windows tests.
        And I honestly like the Linux vs Windows vs OS X benchmarks, these are really superb idea, the only thing is not to mess up and make the results comparable.
        Very good, Phoronix, very good!

            "support for 32-bit prefixes with 64-bit Wine"

            Does that mean we now can install a 64-bits wine (without having to install the 32-bits version of each library) and that 32-bits programs will automatically install in Program Files (x86) ?

              No. It's just support for running something that uses a 32-bit wrapper (installation programs, for example.)

                I temporarily removed Phoronix from my Adblock white-list. Would You remove those annoying Flash commercials that don't have a close button on them and that cover a significant part of text? Those ones that begin in the left panel but spread to the right?

                Otherwise I guarantee You a lot of people will follow my choice.

                  This is a bug with the ad provider, we are working to get it corrected.

                    I supposed so, that's why I used the word "temporarily".
