WineXS - GUI (Graphical User Interface) for Wine

Wine makes it possible to run Windows programs alongside any Unix-like operating system, particularly Linux. At its heart, Wine is an implementation of the Windows Application Programing Interface (API) library, acting as a bridge between the Windows program and Linux.

Think of Wine as a compatibility layer, when a Windows program tries to perform a function that Linux doesn't normally understand, Wine will translate that program's instruction into one supported by the system. For example, if a program asks the system to create a Windows pushbutton or text-edit field, Wine will convert that instruction into its Linux equivalent in the form of a command to the window manager using the standard X11 protocol.

WineXS is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) for Wine. WineXS allows you to easily configure Wine by installing and removing  software, editing the registry, managing files, and more.

Installation:
Download WineXS from here
Extract it to a directory: tar -zxvf winexs-1.4.2.tgz
