    What's that program called where it is similar to Parallels but you don't have to open a virtual desktop? You can just have the Windows program working side by side with other programs in OS X.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    There's WINE on Linux (and I believe DarWINE on OS X)...I think that's what you are referring to...

    Nahh, it's not Wine, it was released not too long ago and they said they were going to work on getting hardware acceleration. Hmm.

    EDIT: I think I read it in a magazine, I'll go through my magazines tomorrow.

    It's WINE.

    WINE is the original open-source Linux implementation.

    Darwine is the open-source Mac OS X implementation, based on WINE.

    CrossOver Office is the commercial Mac OS X and Linux implementation, also based on WINE.
