The amount of Linux users has increased considerably over the last few years. You no longer have to be a high-level user to be able to use it comfortably, thanks to distributions like Ubuntu or Mint, for instance. But when you decide to move onto Linux from Windows you'll probably miss some of your former programs... If so, you have to download Wine.
The ideal tool to move on from Windows to Linux
Wine is a tool that implements the Windows API, therefore, allowing the execution of programs created specifically for Microsoft operating systems. This application, that isn't an emulator, even allows you to run DOS applications, making it unnecessary to use Windows and offering the user the possibility to enjoy the open-source operating system par excellence.
