Wine is a unique piece of software that allows you to run software and games built for Windows on a Linux system like Ubuntu.
This software acts as a layer that sits between Ubuntu and the windows application. It will translate Windows system calls into a system call that Ubuntu understands.
Wine also differs from virtualization software like VirtualBox as you do not need to run a full version of Windows on top of Ubuntu.
Within this guide, we will show you how to install the latest version of Wine for Ubuntu.
