    I recently installed it on my MBP but I am yet to do anything with it. I did run the MSFS 2004 installer briefly and it seemed to run quite well but I canceled before anything got installed. Before I use it, where does Darwine save files? Also, has anyone successfully ran processor intensive Apps with it? I recall reading on these forums that someone ran Darwine and found it only useful for games... a prospect I find hard to believe!
    Can someone confirm?
    Thanks.

    Darwine is the Darwin port of WINE. WINE is a recursive acronym for WINE Is Not an Emulator. It is an opensource set of reverse-engineered API's that allow Windows applications to run on Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. WINE is being ported to Darwin, the BSD underpinnings of MacOS X.
