PlayOnLinux – a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®. It is a graphical frontend for the Wine software compatibility layer which allows Linux users to install Windows-based video games, and many other applications.
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.
– 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.
– PlayOnLinux is free software.
– PlayOnLinux uses Bash and Python.
Not all games are supported. Nevertheless, you can use our manual installation module.
PlayOnLinux mainly relies on WineHQ project.
