How to Install Wine 2.0, Now Run Microsoft Office 2013 on Linux

Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, macOS, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.
The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 2.0 is now available.

This release represents over a year of development effort and around 6,600 individual changes. The main highlights are the support for Microsoft Office 2013, and the 64-bit support on macOS ,better HiDPI scaling, for gamers Wine 2.0 implements, fixes of Direct3D, sRGB read/write support, array textures and so on, tweaks to DirectX support.

On the audio side there’s GStreamer 1.0 support, DirectSound down-mixing to stereo.

It also contains a lot of improvements across the board, as well as support for many new applications and games.
