Maintainer Rating Definitions

The Application Database features a maintainer rating system that allows you to see which applications work best in Wine. This rating system is designed to assist users by giving a rating based on an ‘expert's’ experience.

  • Platinum

    An application can be rated as Platinum if it installs and runs flawlessly ‘out of the box’. No changes required in winecfg.

  • Gold

    Application works flawlessly with some DLL overrides, other settings or third party software.

  • Silver

    Application works excellently for ‘normal’ use; a game works fine in single-player but not in multi-player, Windows Media Player works fine as a plug-in and stand-alone player, but cannot handle DRM etc.

  • Bronze

    Application works, but it has some issues, even for normal use; a game may not redraw properly or display fonts in wrong colours, be much slower than it should etc.

  • Garbage

    An application gets this rating if it cannot be used for the purpose it was designed for. There should be at least one bug report in Bugzilla if it gets this rating. Application cannot be installed, does not start, or starts but has so many errors that it is nearly impossible to use it.
