Wineskin: Run Windows Software On Mac OS X Without An Emulator


Install Windows software on your Mac – without the need for a virtual machine, an emulator or dual-booting. Wineskin is a Mac app that brings Wine to your Mac, OS X style, allowing you to create custom packages including everything your favorite Windows programs need to run on your Mac (well… many of your favorite Windows programs).

Whether it’s an ancient version of Quicken you still use to keep track of finances or a game you still love from your PC-bound past, there are certain programs you simply cannot find for the Mac. For this reason alone many people set up virtual machines, running the entirety of Windows for the sake of a few apps. Depending on what you want to run, however, that’s a lot of overkill – and certainly doesn’t offer the performance of running the app in a Windows alone.
