Wine 1.8.1 Released. Ubuntu, Linux Mint.

Wine stands for "Wine is not an emulator" and it is an open source command-line software that's capable of translating Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly for integrating Windows applications into your Linux/UNIX desktop. For regular Linux users, the above means that the Wine software will allow them to run applications which are designed to be installed only on Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Considering the fact that the Linux and Open Source software ecosystem is thriving with many alternatives to popular Windows apps, we feel obligated to suggest Wine only to those of you who are really tight to a certain application that has no correspondent in the Linux world.

The latest version is 1.8.1

To install Wine 1.8.1 just run the following commands via your systems Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.8 winetricks

That's all enjoy!
