The Wine development release 1.3.16 is now available. Wine lets you run Windows software on other operating systems (Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, and Solaris). With Wine, you can install and run these applications just like you would in Windows.
To install Wine open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

When installed you can find Wine under Applications -> Wine.
