Is Wine safe to use with Linux Mint?

Episode 1269 (53:50)

Roy from Fresno, CA

Roy has been playing with Linux Mint and wants to know if Wine is safe to use with it. Wine duplicates the Windows Programming Interface, so that he could run a Windows program in Linux. Leo says it's plenty safe to use. Wine tends to work best with more popular programs, so a smaller program may not run on it.
