Wine for Android Coming Soon

Running Android apps on Windows is no big feat thanks to the countless emulators out there, nor is the ability to run most common Windows apps on desktop Linux over Wine; but isn't the ability to run Windows apps on an Android smartphone or tablet quite something? Wine developer Alexandre Julliard agrees.

At the Open Source Software Developers' European convention, Julliard showed off an early version of Wine for Android, which allows you to exploit today's high-resolution devices to run legacy Windows applications. According to Phoronix, Wine for Android has quite some development left as it's seeing performance issues, but the day isn't far when you won't miss Windows 8 on your tablet.
