        Lets you run Windows apps on a Mac Linux.

        No need to bloat Mac Linux PCs with installing Windows in dual boot 🙂

        I am somewhat perplexed. In the very long list of changes and improvements mentioned in the above linked document announcing the release of version 5, there is only one short paragraph with “Mac” in it:
        The builtin AVI, MPEG-I, and WAVE decoders have been removed; we now
        depend on GStreamer or the Mac QuickTime Toolkit to decode such
        media files.

        And “QuickTime” does not run only on Macs, there is a version for Windows too:

        Windows 7 Professional, SP1, x64 Group W (ex B) & macOS + Linux (Mint)

          What a shame 🙁

          Wrong forum, wrong OS.

          I meant Linux.
