Bordeaux 1.8.2 for FreeBSD review

Juraj Šípoš Who maintains http://www.freebsd.nfo.sk/  wrote a nice review about Bordeaux on FreeBSD. The original review is at www.linuxexpres.cz and is in Slovak, here is a direct link to the English version. You can also use Google Translate to translate to another language of your choice.

Here is a small snip of the review :

Bordeaux is a port area in the southwest of France on the river Garonne. Produces are high-quality wine. Recently it its name in English (wine) of each application and environment, which programs you run Windows on Unix without that you must have installed the Windows operating system.

Bordeaux - interesting extension for Wine

Wine is something totally different, what emulators as VMware or qemu in which the user must install the entire Windows environment. In practice, this represents money for the license and the unnecessary costs. Wine is not a emulator, which is confirmed by the abbreviation of the name in English - Wine Is Not an Emulator. Wine is a working environment without emulating the processor.

When the application interface Wine saw the first light of the world (even with Win32 supporting around 1995), had many shortcomings and remember the veterans, showed that, although with some difficulties to run 16-bit Windows programs, with 32-bit environment are still problems. In those times it was difficult to configure Wine and then of course to use it.

Bordeaux 1.8.2 for OpenSolaris review

myunix.org has a nice review of Bordeaux 1.8.2 for OpenSolaris.

For what seems like forever using Wine (The Windows compatability layer) on Solaris was an absolute pain. There was once a time when you had to compile it by hand, then Vit Hrachovy & Apostolos Syropoulos & Albert Lee started producing SVR4 packages that made installing as easy as “pkgadd -d winepackage”.

Since then Brandon Barker has pushed the latest stable release of Wine into the contrib IPS repository which integrates well with the new software management architecture for OpenSolaris.

By itself Wine is very usable but you need a fair amount of expertise or lots of time to get your favourite Windows application running correctly. This is why we have companies like Bordeaux Group and CodeWeavers who sell commercially supported Wine version or management tools that make our lives a little easier.

To give you an idea of how easy it is I am just going to focus on how easy Bordeaux 1.8.2 makes it to get MS Office 2003 up and running.

Bordeaux for Mac OSX 1.8 status update

First I'd like to apologize to those of you following this list and waiting on a new Mac build. We plan on having the new build out in just a few more days. I'd like to go ahead and give you a rundown of the new features in what we hope will be the final release.

1. IE7 Support
2. Application Bundle support for all Win32 Applications
3. Much improved and responsive Bordeaux Setup and Cellar Manager applications

There are still some glitches such as the Application bundles don't yet have the proper icons but we are working on that and hope to have it addressed in the 2.0 build. Part of the holdup is that our patches to Winehq to support Application Bundle generation have been going through very strict review to get in the winehq tree.

You will find attached two screenshots, the first is showing the old Bordeaux Setup on the left and the New Bordeaux Setup on the right. As you can see we've got nice new Aqua styles as well as have gotten rid of that annoying double Dock icon bug.
