The entire game works perfectly. Multiplayer was not tested.
Play Windows-only games, browse the Steam store, and even use the Steam in-game overlay.
Programs like VMWare or Parallels create a virtual computer inside your real computer, with virtual memory, processor, hard drive, etc. You can then install Windows on the virtual computer and run your Windows programs on that.
Vindo uses your computer's real memory, processor, hard drive, etc. instead of creating virtual versions. This makes Vindo much faster than virtual machine software. Programs generally run at the same speed as they would if you installed Windows on your computer.

Ok, I'm not really a pilot. That picture is from when I was 8, and I had a chance to see what it's like to sit in the pilot's seat. If you want to know, there's so many buttons and switches there that it's hard to imagine how anyone is able to fly a plane.
I decided to write Vindo because I feel that being able to run Windows programs on your Mac should be a Fundamental Right of Mac Owners. There are several different ways you can do this, but most of them cost money, and Wine is frankly unusable. I feel that Vindo is the best of both worlds: both free and usable.
Joseph Amir is the content manager for the website and the idea guy for some other stuff. Joseph also played through Crysis Warhead under the guise of bugtesting Vindo. He loves to play videogames and do VFX work on the computer, with destruction simulation being his favorite (he is a male, after all.) Some of his favorite franchises include DiRT, the Batman Arkham series, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and the best thing you could do for him is gift him either Mirrors Edge Catalyst or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
