What Is PlayOnLinux?
PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft Windows.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.
What are PlayOnLinux’s features?
- You don’t have to own a Windows license to use PlayOnLinux.
- PlayOnLinux is based on Wine, and so profits from all its features yet it keeps the user from having to deal with its complexity. (Hallelujah!)
- PlayOnLinux is free software.
- PlayOnLinux uses Bash and Python.
Isn’t this awesome? I told you! And to be honest this app is much better than it actually sounds, it’s simply so much easier to get a Windows App or a Windows Game to work on your Ubuntu OS or Linux Mint than ever before. I still have love for Wine but I think PlayOnLinux is the go-to-app if you want port over some Windows apps, check out the screenshots below for further proof.
