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.

STAR Communication Board



The STAR Communication Board is a project aiming to test and improve the three-part communication skills of system operators. A physical board with electronic components was designed and built in 2015 by William "Stormy" Mauldin and Garrett Maples for the System Operations Training department of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).

This program, written by Stormy Mauldin, is a virtual version of the board. It is more modifiable than the physical board, so it allows for a more unique testing experience.
