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.

Written for FreeDOS in QuickBASIC 4.5, mostly under a hybrid DOSEMU/FreeDOS 1.2 installation, but the final compilation in a release will always be tested on bare silicon in a dedicated FreeDOS installation.
QuickBASIC? Why? To see if it could be done, I guess, and also to re-familiarize myself with this BASIC dialect.
It also compiles in FreeBASIC using the *-lang qb* switch. Linux has dozens of Markdown implementations, probably better than this one, too, but I don't know of any on FreeDOS.
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/qbasdown/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
