Go up one level in this thread

I quickly wanted to point out that Wine is not an emulator. It actually reverse
engineers windows instructions. This basically means that performance is
comparable to native execution except for certain operations which are usually
not common in chess engines (such as reading from the filesystem). For what it's
worth, I can vouch that Shredder 9 UCI running under Wine in Linux is comparable
in performance to Shredder 9 running under windows on the same machine.
