is reporting that developers of the Open Source x86 Project
have succeeded in compiling software to run Windows applications on Intel Macs. Using an OS X friendly version of WINE, a piece of software designed to run Windows apps under Unix/Linux, the project has allowed a small number of Windows programs to run on the new Macs. Although the developers warn the software is far from finished and isn't "anything to get excited about" yet, it is another step closer to running Windows applications on Intel Macs.
From the x86 Project forums:
As for games...let's scale it back a bit...kay?
The wine configure script doesn't "do" opengl on os x, like a great many other things.
Also, note that i've not included *anything* from the Darwine tree as a lot of their stuff is presently set up to *not* work on i386. So i'm going thru, a little bit at a time, and dealing with issues one at a time. Once I think I have a Wine built will all of the normal dependencies in place, I plane to see what I can do about OpenGL, then sound.
