I have a windows and I loved the interface, I had to migrate to Linux and im new here. I heard of Wine for windows system integration. I downloaded this but have no idea how to operate this. How do I get to install a file meant for windows using wine? Where is the actual installation in Linux or in the wine interface?

Hello,

If you want to change the operating system first thing is to take a back up of data you want to use in Linux. The Wine is an open source project developed to convert Windows API calls to POSIX calls, thus allowing the compatibility layer between Windows and Linux.
To install windows programs in Linux follow the steps shown in pictorial form somewhere in middle confirm EULA license terms.

Wine is software used to install applications designed to run on Microsoft Windows on Linux operating system. If you’re on Linux and you need to use an application that is compatible only with Windows and not with Linux, the best tool to use is Wine. If you already have Wine on your computer, here’s how to install a Windows application.

First, download the Windows program and place it in any folder in your hard drive. Once it is downloaded, open the terminal and navigate to the location of the downloaded installer using the CD command. If you are not familiar with the CD command, please understand the instructions in The CD Command. When you’re already inside the folder of the installer, type without quotes “wine [installer.exe]” then hit Enter. For example, type “wine Kies3Setup_3_2_13114_22.exe”.
