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 works as well as (or better than) on Windows ‘out of the box’. No workarounds are required.


Gold

   Application works as well as (or better than) on Windows with workarounds.


Silver

   Application works excellently for ‘normal’ use, but has some problems for which there are no workarounds. 


Bronze

   Application works, but it has some problems for normal use. 


Garbage

   An application gets this rating if the problems are severe enough that 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.
