PlayOnLinux is a graphical front-end for Wine which automatically creates a
prefix for the application you're trying to install. It manages its own wine
versions internally, meaning you only have to have some version of Wine already
already installed as a base and PlayOnLinux will automatically download and use
whatever Wine version is necessary (which can also be specified by the user in the
case of manual, unscripted installations). POL supports the use of installation
scripts which are used to automatically install an application and configure Wine to
work with that application. Dozens of official scripts for various games and
software already exist, and the POL website has tutorials to instruct users on
writing their own.
For maximum performance and compatibility, PlayOnLinux should be run on a 32-bit
system, or on a 64-bit system enabled for multilib, and 32-bit graphic libraries should be available.
