Google to fund Wine February 21, 2008Posted by rjdohnert in 1.
Specifically to get Windows apps like Photoshop and other software to run well. Google already uses Wine for Picasa and Google Earth so they are looking to further the relationship.
I personally think this idea helps not only Linux users but Microsoft and others as well. With projects like Wine porting is going out the door. Having to port software is a tedious task and I think Wine will help to alleviate that task.
