No idea what you're talking about. Linux is not a supported OS.

Wine is a Windows emulator for Linux.

Does anyone have experience of this? I am interested to run FM as a standalone,  no developing.  

If you are looking for testimonials, I think you have a better chance finding them via Google.

Wine HQ doesn't go up to v14 - just thought some of your members might know but guess you're mostly developers who would have a view and so wouldn't use Linux anyway. Not much on Google.

Running it on Wine would be outside of support parameters, which is not a good thing for business-critical applications.  That probably explains why there are very few here that would go there.

I would bet though that a lot of us do run Linux, but for some of our servers (MySQL, Ruby,...).  Just not for desktops.

Wine = Wine Is Not an Emulator

 

The list is not really up to date: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=33

Last I tried this out, and it was admittedly a while ago, it didn't work well. There were all kinds of small niggles in the UI. Definitely would not recommend this route. If you really need FM on linux, your best bet would be to run a virtual machine with a supported OS.
