Maybe this can help those running Linux?

Anybody tried Wine ?


Want to run Windows apps on Linux? Wine just got this huge update
The Wine 6.0 compatibility layer is now available with better support for running Windows games on Linux and Unix-like machines, with early support for Apple's Arm-based silicon Macs.

Wine (Wine is Not an Emulator) is for getting Windows apps and games to run on Linux and Unix-like systems, including macOS. As opposed to running a VM or emulator, Wine focuses on Windows application protocol interface (API) calls and translating them to Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) calls.
