 How to launch Windows binaries on Linux directly

If you must this is nice advice.

"I prefer to run these programs on my GNU/Linux system with Wine. The problem is that I'm tired of having to enter cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\My\ Windows\ App; wine My\ Windows\ App.exe every time I want to launch one of these programs. Having shell scripts for each program is not a great solution either. Wouldn't it be better to simply run My\ Windows\ App.exe directly on an XTerm? Fortunately the Linux kernel already lets you do that with a feature called binfmt_misc."
