What is PlayOnLinux ?

PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.

What are PlayOnLinux's features?

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the interesting points to know:

  • You don't have to own a Windows® license to use PlayOnLinux.
  • PlayOnLinux is based on Wine, and so profits from all its features yet it keeps the user from having to deal with its complexity.
  • PlayOnLinux is free software.
  • PlayOnLinux uses Bash and Python.

Nevertheless, PlayOnLinux has some bugs, as every piece of software:

  • Occasional performance decrease (image may be less fluid and graphics less detailed).
  • Not all games are supported. Nevertheless, you can use our manual installation module.
