Bordeaux running on OpenIndiana Comments Off on Bordeaux running on OpenIndiana

Looking for UNIX and IT expertise? Why not get in touch and see how we can help?

The Bordeaux Technology group have today announced they have a build of Bordeaux running on OpenIndiana. Bordeaux is a commercial implementation of WINE, and they provide support contracts and incident support – ideal for corporate environments where supportability of Open Source solutions is an issue.

Bordeaux itself provides support for:

  • Microsoft Office Suite of Applications. Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access
  • Internet Explorer. Web Developers frequently need to run multiple versions of Internet Explorer to compare how a website will look to all users running different revisions of the browser software
  • Consumer Video Games. In many cases these contain copy-protection systems that are impossible to port to another platform. This makes vendors reluctant to invest the capital in acquiring another system that will work on other platforms
  • Adobe Photoshop CS and CS2
  • Custom applications for which replacement is not available or development/purchase of a replacement is not economically feasible when compared to the cost of maintaining the existing application in a legacy emulation environment

To so quickly have a build of commercial software for OpenIndiana is a great endorsement, especially when it’s something as useful as Bordeaux.

You can head over to their store and pick up the Bordeaux for Solaris license for only $25, including support.
