What is WIne?
Wine (originally an acronym for
Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD.
Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of other methods and allowing you to cleanly integrate Windows applications into your desktop.

Any idea how to use Mobaxterm pro version on Ubuntu? Since I've so many SSH lists that need to be a pro version to save them all. Thanks a bunch 👍
Mobaxterm pro version have a generator of MSI installation package or Portable executable.
You should generate a portabl version of Mobaxterm Professional (>v10.1).
And use it like described above.
