Software Update: PlayOnLinux 4.2.6

PlayOnLinux is a program that should make it easy to Windows software to run on a computer running Linux or OS X running. Simply put, it’s a graphical user shell for Wine, and it uses an online database of configuration scripts to make sure that programs run optimally. Games and programs are installed separately so they don’t ‘bite’ each other, and it’s even possible to use different versions of Wine for different applications. The most recent version of PlayOnLinux is 4.2.6.
