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.

Well… maybe that’s ok at the moment.

But it would be great if softwares were made by using cross-platform frameworks and fortunately there’s some really great software which uses Open Source cross-platform frameworks. It requires more skill from developers but it’s worth of it!
