Wine was originally developed to bring Windows
applications to Linux boxes, but now it is growing
to support ARM chips and of course Android.
Alexandre Julliard, developer of Wine, has now
shown his advances in bringing the abstraction
layer for Windows on Android, and while it’s still in
its early stages, it is functional.
Julliard gave a demo of Wine for Android, showing
a Windows app run in Android environment, but
the performance was described as ‘horrendously
slow.’ We do have to note, though, that Android
was not running natively, but was also simulated
in the demo which should have slowed things
further.
Takeaway and good news is work is being done
on Wine for Android, and while it’s not yet there,
sooner or later it is coming to Android.
