Hola mi amigos. I decided to switch over to Linux because my friends say that is less vunerable to attacks than Windows based systems are. I hope that I can get used to the switch fast. Anywho, my question: Is there a library (or something) that allows a user run .exe files on Linux? I'm asking this because I mainly play a game I downloaded, and not much else. Any help is appreciated.

There is another option that using WineCVS Normal wine as it's created, on the wine website there is a tutorial for debian system's that as soon as the latest version of wine is out it is avalible for download via apt or synaptic this is better than CVS wine since it's alway's up to date and wont break after an upgrade

Thank you for the greets, and thank you for showing me Wine. One problem I run into though, is whenever I try to install IE 6 via Wine Tools, it fails. Reason: Cannot download required components. Help would be appreciated.
