Wabi

(Windows ABI) Software from former Sun division SunSoft that emulated Windows applications under Unix by converting the calls made by Windows applications into X Window calls. Since it executed native code, it ran Windows applications at a high performance level. The SunSoft unit was folded back into the parent company, and Wabi shipped for a time with the Solaris 2.5 OS, but eventually reached end of life status. See Wine.
