Wine is a great tool for Linux users who need to get their Windows software running outside the Microsoft OS, and it actually runs most things fairly well, but it can be a pain to configure. Actually, configuration is a huge reason it’s not more popular. So, what’s the logical thing to do? That’s right! Make an application that automates the configuration of popular Windows software. Someone has just started such an endeavor. It’s called Wine-Doors.

Actually, I can’t believe that no one else has tried this yet. It seems so obvious now.

    There’s a bunch of wine configureators already.
    winetools…. to name one.

    I hadn’t heard about winetools. Looking it up, the last timestamp on the changelog is 13.12.2005. It supports obsolete versions of Photoshop (7), Internet Explorer (6), and Office (97?!), among other things. Are there any other, more recent configuration apps?
