one would suppose that this would happen, eventually,, but then you spot this Headline:
Installing Windows apps on Linux is about to get easier with Winepak
How? Have you ever heard of Flatpak? If not, Flatpak provides a sandbox environment in which users can run applications
in isolation from the rest of the system.
These applications are containerized, so you don't have to worry about dependencies. You install the container and it runs.
- - Simple as that. ..
Well, guess what? Winepak makes it possible to create containerized Windows applications that are installable on Linux.
Imagine, if you will, that you could install a Windows app on Linux with a single command.
Of course, you have to first install Flatpak on your system, and then add the necessary repositories as well as install Winepak.
With that out of the way, you can install any Windows application found in the Winepak repository.
- - Granted, there isn't much at the moment.
the thing is, that Crossover is used to create containerized Windows applications that are installable on Linux,
and these Bottles / Containers are what Crossover has been doing, for some years, now.
