Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

What's better for running Windows software in Linux, Wine or Windows VMware?

What are the differences, advantages, and disadvantages?

VMware creates guest operating systems - you switch back and forth between OSes.
VMware is/was expensive.

Wine has limitations - so for example you want to run a game like WOW in wine, you might have major issues.

What software do you need to run? Linux has almost anything there is except brand-name gaming and office productivity software like MS Office.
