Leave Windows Behind - but bring your apps with you
To be presented at CeBIT 2009's Open Source Forum
Powerful trends today are making non-Windows
operating systems attractive to many people and
organizations, but everybody has a few key
Windows applications they can't do without.
Wine can be a useful tool for running legacy
applications without having to purchase
Windows for every computer. This talk will
show you how and why you can leave
Windows behind -- and still use key windows
