A CDE Definition
(Windows ABI) Software from former Sun division SunSoft that emulated Windows applications under Unix by converting the calls made by Windows applications into X Window calls. Since it executed native code, it ran Windows applications at a high performance level. The SunSoft unit was folded back into the parent company, and Wabi shipped for a time with the Solaris 2.5 OS, but eventually reached end of life status. See Wine.
(Wine Is Not an Emulator) Software that runs Windows applications under Linux and Unix on an x86 PC. Wine runs Windows executables intact, trapping calls from the application to the Windows interface, converting them as necessary and directing them to X Window routines, which do the processing.
