is it possible to run Win32 apps on FreeBSD? How does it work, with an interpreter or so? Where can I find this?

    : Maybe the best approach is to look for native apps that would do the same thing and that will work better on FreeBSD. Most of the win apps are the same quality as their native platform :(. Why would somebody spoil the advantages of running on FreeBSD by trying to use win apps?

    Well before someone turns this into a heated argument which I hope doesn't occur, I would like to point out that things like running Win32 programs etc is the users concern alone and we should learn to respect suhc questions.
