Bug Description

Play On Linux, allows a very easy installation of many commercial games and softwares designed to run with Microsoft®'s Windows®.

It is opensource, has a graphical front-end, is based on Wine and so profits of all his possibilities but avoids to the user the need to apprehend his complexity altough he can exploit some advanced functions.

Including Play on Linux on the official Ubuntu repositories could help some new users to migrate :-)
