Wine-doors is an application designed to make installing Windows software on Linux, Solaris, or other Unix systems easier. It is essentially a package management tool for Windows software on Unix systems. It is developed and styled to fit in with the GNOME desktop, but is fairly portable and a user interface could be developed for KDE. The main goals are to replace winetools, allow flexible application management, provide Queue processing capabilities, provide Application Database integration, avoid global native overrides, automatically add items to the desktop menus, and allow users to manage their Windows applications with profiles and bottles.

Smart is a package manager (like APT or Yum) that works with several backends including RPM, dpkg, and Slackware packages. It uses an algorithm that will not only find a solution, if one is available, but will find the best solution. This is done by quickly weighting every possible solution with a pluggable policy, which redefines the term "best" depending on the operation goal (install, remove, upgrade, etc.).
