Wine coming to Android    

  Wine coming to Android
Added by Gauss on 5.02.2013

But still in early stages of development.

Seems that you could 'soon' be able to run Windows apps on Google's mobile OS. For now, this is still a WIP.

It looks like Wine, which is used to run Windows programs on Unix-like systems such as Linux and OS X, is being ported to Android.

Alexandre Julliard, the developer behind it, gave an update about an ARM-friendly flavor of the software, showing off a version that runs on Android at the 2013 Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting...

According to Phoronix, the demo of a Windows app running on Android was "horrendously slow," but Julliard chalks that up to the fact that the sample was chugging along on an Android emulator.

Julliard has led development of Wine since 1994 and is an employee of CodeWeavers, which sells a proprietary Windows emulator based on the open source software. It's hard to imagine running a Windows application on an Android smartphone, but it might make sense for tablets—or Android-based PCs and thin clients. (There are already ways to run Android apps on Windows.)

Wine on Android is not entirely surprising, since Android is Linux-based, and there was already a project to bring Wine to ARM processors.

"While Wine is coming to ARM and there's quite a lot of interest there, CodeWeavers is quite interested and hopeful for the success of Intel x86 Atom CPUs for tablets," Phoronix founder Michael Larabel wrote. "If Android gains traction on x86-based tablets and other mobile devices, CodeWeavers has a lot of commercial opportunities for pushing the running of Windows software on Android."

Well, as you can see, this is still a WIP, so there's no word yet on when the Wine port for Android will be ready.
