It is well known by all of us that Windows applications cannot be run in Linux natively, therefore a set of parameters is required so that we can enjoy the thousands of Windows applications, and this is possible thanks to PlayOnLinux . PlayOnLinux is an application or environment through which it is possible to install and use Windows applications (programs, games, etc.) in Linux environments without losing their quality or performance..

 

PlayOnLinux features
Some of its characteristics are:

 

  • It is based on Wine with which we have numerous configuration options
  • It's totally free
  • It is written in Bash and in Python

 

 

If with this you are decided to uninstall PlayOnLinux from Linux perhaps due to performance or execution issues, we will see the correct process to do this.
