Running windows applications directly in linux



Linux.com has a good explanation of using binfmt_misc to directly launch a windows (or java or python) application just by typing in the application name. *(without all the contortions of … /home/user/bin/wine /home/user/.wine/c_drive/Program Files/Really Neat Software/Program.exe ) You do have to make the app executable under linux (chmod 755) and you can take it as far as symlinking from a directory in your path (/home/user/bin???) or the system path (/usr/bin).
