Wine is a free software application which aims to allow Unix-like operating systems on the x86 architecture to execute programs written for Microsoft Windows.This article primarily talks about setting up Wine for running the MS Windows version of World of Warcraft.Wine also runs on Macintosh computers with x86 CPUs under Mac OS X, but since Blizzard makes a Mac OS X native World of Warcraft client, running it under Wine is unnecessary.Ventrilo on the other hand does not have a client for Linux and needs to run through Wine, just like Wo W.However there's an open source VOIP client capable of connecting to Ventrilo 3.x servers called Mangler.
