MySQL is a multithreaded, multi-user, SQL (Structured Query Language) Database Management System (DBMS) with an estimated six million installations. MySQL AB makes MySQL available as open source software / free software under the GNU General Public License (GPL), but they also sell it under traditional commercial licensing arrangements for cases where the intended use is incompatible with use of the GPL.

Wine is a project to allow a PC running a Unix-like operating system and the X Window System to run x86 programs for Microsoft Windows. Alternately, those wishing to port a Windows application to a Unix-like system can compile it against the Wine libraries. The name was derived from the recursive acronym "Wine Is Not an Emulator" (it implements a compatibility layer), although some have used the unofficial expansion "Windows Emulator". Although the forms "WINE" and "wine" of the name are sometimes used, the developers have agreed on the now correct "Wine". [Wikipedia]

Note I have personally already tested following major tools (which I can not live without) under my SuSE box: XMLspy, Beyond compare, HP49 emulator without any pain using a daily build of WINE (beginn of 2005)

This is release 0.9 of Wine, a free implementation of Windows on Unix. After 12 years of development, this release marks the beginning of the beta testing phase. Everybody is encouraged to try it; while there are still bugs, most applications are expected to at least install and do something useful. from release 0.9 anouncement
