This question already has an answer here:
I just started using Ubuntu yesterday because Windows has been nothing but headaches for nearly 20 years now. There are only a few Windows-based applications I want to continue using, and it seems something called WINE will probably enable me to go on using those applications. But ... all the directions I'm finding for how to get and use WINE are confusing the heck out of me.
http://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu provides a link to download WINE, but before using it the page says you first must add the WineHQ PPA Repository. I don't even know what that is. Per the directions, I opened Ubuntu Software Center, but I don't see Edit ... which makes following the rest of the directions impossible.
Please help. And please use small words, lol, because I know nothing about computer programming. I only know Microsoft is evil and I'm sick of dealing with it...
