I always maintain windummies can write better software if they
maintain WINE compliance.

With netbooks advancing, it may just be the most viable thing to
be doing - a lightweight Linux distro with WINE and freeDOS as
an alternative to windummy OSen on the netbook.

The advantage to software companies for ensuring complete WINE
compatibility and compliance is that if windummy OSen and
micoshat goes tits up, they still have a way to sell their
product. Any way, why would want to miss a sale by not
testing for 100% WINE compliance? There are some 100 million
Linux users out there to be selling WINE compliance software to
if you genuinely believe windummy OSen is good enough
for Linux users.
