Win4Lin: Running Windows Applications Under Linux - page 4
Computing in the real world
Win4Lin works as advertised. The fine print is there but, with the exception of games, most Windows applications should run under Win4Lin. Performance is comparable to running Windows alone although some window updates were not as smooth as with Windows alone.
Win4Lin will not run all Windows applications but it does run the important ones from word processors to spreadsheets. A free eval copy can be downloaded from their Netraverseďż˝s website. It runs for an hour before putting up messages indicating that it is an eval version. It is a great way to verify that your set of applications runs under Win4Lin. Most people that try it will like it. I do.
