Reminders: Use WINE with Caution

Postby arisgailseemendoza » Sat Feb 13, 2010 8:46 pm

Hi Pipol!

I just want to open up ang paggamit ng WINE sa Linux. We all know that WINE is a program used to run Windows application sa Linux. Kaya naimbento ito dahil gusto natin na yung mga applications na malimit nating ginagamit sa Windows (especially yung mga apps na walang available na alternative apps na open source) eh mag-run sa Linux, at least maging at home tayo sa Linux environment. But be aware na ang mga viruses and malwares and other security threats na malimit nagru-run sa Windows OS eh may possibility or talagang mag-run sa Linux thru Wine na puwedeng mag-cause ng sira sa system na ang kahantungan eh magmalfunction ang PC mo.

Just to avoid the vulnerability, i-run lang ang mga Windows apps na sa tingin niyo ay safe at na-i-run at nagamit niyo na before. Don't run Windows apps and EXEs na kahina-hinala at kaduda-duda, and para mas sure, i-delete niyo na lang ang mga ito para hindi ma-run ng iba pang tao na gumagamit din ng computer niyo.

Isinama ng Bayanihan Team ang Wine sa distribution ng Bayanihan Linux para madali para sa atin ang mag-run ng Windows apps sa Linux. Pero kung sa tingin niyo ay wala naman kayong ni-ru-run na Windows Apps eh much better to uninstall the WINE to prevent from such security vulnerabilities. And kahit na may kasamang AntiVirus ang Bayanihan, ma-ige na ang nagsisiguro. Hehehe! You can always install back Wine gamit ang Synaptic.

For more information on Wine, you can visit their site at You can also search thru your favorite search engines ang mga information tungkol sa Wine sa mga forums and discussions.

Enjoy! Have a safe computing!

I am a Wine user, since I have to run Microsoft Office - I am not productive with OpenOffice/LibreOffice

Virus infecting Wine setup?? No big deal guys, just remove Wine using your fav package manager, then reinstall it again. It's like doing a complete reformat:P

No need to remove or reinstall WINE itself. All you need to do is just delete the:

/home/<your_username>/.wine directory.

The next time you try to run a Windows program, WINE will recreate this directory from scratch.

I used to reply on WINE. But now, i like to use VM, eg, vmware or xen. It is easier to run windows applications in vm. WINE is not stable enough.
