Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
The BFG is a simpler, faster alternative to git-filter-branch for cleansing bad data out of your Git repository history. You can use it for removing crazy big files, and for removing passwords, credentials and other private data. The git-filter-branch command is enormously powerful and can do things that the BFG can't, but the BFG is much better for the tasks above, because is faster and simpler. The BFG isn't particularily clever, but is focused on making the above tasks easy. If you need to, you can use the beautiful Scala language to customize the BFG. Which has got to be better than Bash scripting at least some of the time. The BFG will update your commits and all branches and tags so they are clean, but it doesn't physically delete the unwanted stuff. Examine the repo to make sure your history has been updated, and then use the standard git gc command to strip out the unwanted dirty data.
