Wine compatibility and performance on FreeBSD 7

Hello Everyone,

I have a small blog about running Wine on Unix operating systems and
over the last couple days I've been
experimenting with Wine on FreeBSD 7 beta 2 (I see beta 4 is out, many

If anyone here is interested I ran Office 97 and 2000 out of the box
on FreeBSD 7beta no registry files
or special hacks needed. Ive also run a couple small applications
(Qicktime 7.1.6) (IE 5 5.5 6) and then some benchmarks
3DMark 2000v1.1, 3DMark2001SE, GL Excess and PC Mark04. In the future
ill see if I can get 3DMark 2003 and 3DMark 2005
to run and produce results as well.

I don't know if any of you guys or gals are Gamers.... But just in
case I also installed Halo in Wine and it runs about the same
on FreeBSD as it does on Linux. With D3D, DDraw and OpenGL working
most every game that is running in Wine should run
on FreeBSD.. I don't know this as fact as I've only tried one Game and
four Benchmarks, but it does look promising.

More info can be found here:

Office 97/2000:

IE, QT etc..

Benchmark results & Halo:

Oh yea, were seeking contributors... if your interested in Wine on
FreeBSD and believe you can
help us out see :

Thanks for your time.........
