PlayOnBSD easily install and run Windows software for use with Wine

I just noticed that PlayOnBSD version 4.2.8 has been added to the FreshPorts repository. It should be allot easier and straight forward for BSD users to play Games and run productivity software on FreeBSD and PC-BSD now. So, if you need to run a Microsoft Windows Game or office application go and install the port and start testing PlayOnBSD and Wine now.

This is the adaptation of PlayOnLinux to FreeBSD. The purpose of this
program is to simplify installation of MS Windows software to run under
the Windows emulator "Wine".

The name indicates, that the program was initially developed to support
easy installation of Windows games on Linux. The range of supported
applications has long been extended to cover a wide range of windows
applications including Microsoft Office.

PlayOnFreeBSD behaves significantly different than PlayOnLinux in a
number of aspects, e.g. which version of Wine to use (only a single
version is normally installed on FreeBSD, but PlayOnLinux tries to run
each Windows application in a Wine environment that has previously been
reported to give good results and installs missing Wine versions in the
user's home directory).
