    Welcome to the forums... this article probably lays it all out for you about as well as anyone here could do it. Otherwise, it's open source so you should be able to download the source code and take a closer look to see what's taking place.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Wine provides the API's (programming functions) needed by Windows applications in a Linux environment. It does that by providing shared libraries that Windows applications expect to be available to handle standard system calls. In addition, applications that provide their own shared libraries (DLL's) when installed, can load and use those in the Wine environment. In any case, Ozar provided a pretty good link to how this all works. You might also want to visit WineHQ for more information.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
