More Information about Wineskin

While there is a lot to Wineskin, at its core it runs Windows™ software by using Wine (www.winehq.org), which is a re-implementation of the Win32 API for non-Windows™ operating systems.

Wineskin

Normal Wineskin Engine builds’ Wine versions are built from Wine source code from www.winehq.org

Crossover Engine builds are built from the Wine source code used in the Crossover.

Crossover is a wonderful product by Codeweavers

Wineskin Engines use WineskinX11, a custom version of X11 (required by Wine) made from XQuartz, which is an x.org based X11 server. It does not use Apple's X11.app. You can have it use XQuartz.app instead of WineskinX11 if you so choose. Wine versions from around 1.5.26+ have a Wine Mac driver that can also be used instead of needing X11.
