About Wine Reviews:


There is a multitude of software developed only for the Windows operating system and even when software vendors port their applications to another platform, generally it lacks features that the Windows version contains. The only solution these developers face is to have access to both systems for testing which leads to increased infrastructure demands, and wasted project resources. Our goal is to have native ports of essential Windows tools and applications made available for MacOS users.

Version 7.0.0 New Features:


  • added plink terminal support
  • added puttygen terminal support
  • added pageant terminal support
  • fixed some font issues
  • Small bug fixes
We use PayPal as our preferred payment provider, with PayPal you do not need an account to make a transaction simply select to pay via credit card, its very simple and fast.
