A while ago, I was looking around for a way to run a Windows program in OS X. I was busy encoding a file, and didn’t want to restart so that I could boot into Windows. Rather than inconvenience myself, I stumbled across an awesome guide by LifeHacker. The guide featured a program called WineBottler, similar to the famous Wine in linux. The two are very much alike, as they both let you run Windows programs outside of their native OS. Not all programs work in WineBottler though, as there are some dependencies it just cannot handle. For more information, check out the original LifeHacker guide.
