Comment Re:Don't forget Wine (Score 1) 289

Wine has nothing to do with virtualization.

False. Both are methods for running the software you want while still retaining the freedom to select an operating system.

It's a compatibility layer, nothing more.

False. It's a compatibility layer that might eliminate the need for you to use full-blown virtualization.

Yes, I am aware of the recursive acronym. I see it (and your comment) as exactly the kind of pendantry that is keeping many people from enjoying open source software. Fortunately I am able to see past it, and despite the name of the product, I am able to realize that Parallels and WINE can be used to meet the exact same needs.
