Win4Lin is a proprietary Windows emulator that runs on Linux, requires a Windows license, and currently emulates Windows 98, and Windows ME. Support for Windows XP is being developed.

Win4Lin supports more Windows applications than Wine or CrossOver Office, and has better performance than VMware. It may be a good choice when needed Windows applications have no acceptable native Linux equivalents and are not supported by Wine.
