With Microsoft’s initiative to bring Linux Bash Shell on Windows 10, the Windows users are now able to run their favorite Linux tools on their current operating system. But what if you need to run full-fledged Windows apps and games on a Linux distro?
In that case, a software like Wine is really helpful. The developers of this utility have recently released the new version, i.e., 4.0, with lots of features. Wine 4.0 is the result of a year of development effort.
If you’re interested in numbers, Wine 4.0 brings more than 6,000 changes after seven weekly release candidates. The biggest changes include:
- Support for game controllers
- Vulkan support
- Direct3D 12 support
- High-DPI support on Android
It’s worth noting that to get the advantage of Direct3D 12 support, you’d need the vkd3d library and a Vulkan-capable graphics card.
