                                  Has I saw a symbol of a hour glass with some red wine, my mouth watered. Just took a  rememberance of Australia White Wine, but this was something Red in color, I just heard the word from my prev article on jolicloud, OS of netbooks.Jolicloud supports Wine in its application.Went a search in web got some information in wiki which is given below

                              Wine is a free software application that aims to allow Unix-like computer operating systems on the x86 or x86-64 architecture to execute programs written for Microsoft Windows. Wine also provides a software library known as Winelib against which developers can compile Windows applications to help port them to Unix-like systems.

The name 'Wine' derives from the recursive acronym Wine INot an Emulator. While the name sometimes appears in the forms "WINE" and "wine", the project developers have agreed to standardize on the form "Wine".

Wine is predominantly written by means of enhanced “clean-room” techniques, with some developers advising against the use of certain information obtained via documentation or tools present in proprietary SDKs (for example, the Platform SDK or Windows Driver Kit). In most circumstances Wine developers use black-box testing to uncover specific behaviour, and code added to Wine is generally required to be accompanied by test cases.
