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.
wsjt-x_improved is a clone of the excellent wsjt-x software by Joe Taylor K1JT, Steve Franke K9AN, Bill Somerville G4WJS and others (https://sourceforge.net/projects/wsjt/). Sometimes, however, even good things can be improved…

Download the various versions on the "Files" tab (https://sourceforge.net/projects/wsjt-x-improved/files/).
wsjt-x_improved includes the following additional functions:
- Highlighting of CQ and 73/RR73 messages.
- A new "H" button enables the FT8 DXpedition hound mode to be switched on and off directly via the main program window. Simply set your rig's VFO to the correct DXp frequency. When you hear the fox, just press the "H" button and make your QSO. Press the "H" button again to return to normal FT8 mode.
- “FT8”, “FT4”, MSK”, and “JT” buttons make it easy to switch between the frequently used modes (useful when menus are hidden).
- Some bug fixes to the GA releases.
- In the Wide Graph window, text of "Control" checkbox has been removed to prevent accidental ticking when setting lower audio frequencies.
- FT8 and FT4 decoders optimized for DX. (Slightly more false decodes might occur when set to 'Deep'. If you don't like that, choose 'Normal' instead.)
- The widescreen versions are optimized for laptops. They provide a larger Band Activity window, but require more horizontal space. Give it a try!
- You can also try the AL version (alternative layout). It provides a larger Band Activity window on narrow screens.
- Band Hopping for FT8, FT4 and MSK144! A new Tab has checkboxes for the most important FT8, FT4 and MSK144 frequencies. Just select the bands/modes you want and push the "Band Hopping" button. Automatic band hopping takes place every other full minute. (Very useful together with PSKReporter.)
- New: False Decodes Reduction (FDR)! When enabled, it reduces significantly the number of FT8 false decodes without a reduction of the sensitivity. It only increases the required confidence level for some unusual message formats. FDR is automatically disabled for all Special Operating modes.
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/wsjt-x-improved/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
