    Play on Linux


    What is PlayOnLinux ?

    PlayOnLinux is a piece of sofware which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and softwares designed to run with Microsoft®'s Windows®.
    Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings an accessible and efficient solution to this problem, cost-free and rescpetful of the free softwares.
    What are PlayOnLinux's features?

    Here is a non-exhaustive list of the interesting points to know:

    * You don't have to own a Windows® license to use PlayOnLinux.
    * PlayOnLinux is based on Wine, and so profits from all its possibilities yet it keeps the user away from its complexity while exploiting some of its advanced functions.
    * PlayOnLinux is a free software.
    * PlayOnLinux uses Bash and Python

    Nevertheless, PlayOnLinux has some defects, as every piece of software:

    * Occasional performances decrease (image may be less fluid and graphics less detailed).
    * Not all games are supported. Nevertheless, you can use our manual installation module.
