    w00t! Wine is great. A surprising number of programs actually work really well.

    Wine is getting better and better at an incredibly fast rate. They devs have put 15 years of work into this, and I think that's incredible. It's amazing that any Windows programs can be run at all.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done
    Best thread ever

    Given the vast, incompletely documented, convoluted and closed nature of the windows API, Wine is truly a feat.
    A large number of programs have at least some working functionality.
    A little music notation program I grew to love works flawlessly.

    I haven't gotten a dang thing to work on Wine, which is pretty sad. I got ONE program to work successfully, and no games I have work with it.
