Wine to run Windows programs on Android

Running Android apps on Windows isn't new, but running Windows programs on Android is definitely an interesting twist. This new project is developed by Alexandre Julliard, the original developer behind the Wine software project. Wine enables the running of Windows applications on other operating systems like Linux/UNIX/Mac OS X, and Julliard gave a demonstration of the upcoming Android version at a meeting in Brussels. Full details at Phoronix.
After working through some initial issues in his demo, Julliard quietly showed off Wine running on Android. However, the performance was horrendously slow. The performance problems though were attributed to running the Android environment emulated rather than showing off the Wine implementation from a bare metal device.

Alexandre Julliard uses an Apple MacBook for development of his software that runs on Linux to run Windows software... Android was emulated for his demo.
