Wine 0.9.44 Released
jshriverWVU writes to let us know about the release of Wine 0.9.44. Wine is a free implementation of Windows on Unix/Linux. New in this release are: better heuristics for making windows managed; automatic detection of timezone parameters; improvements to the built-in WordPad; better signatures support in crypt32; still more gdiplus functions; and of course lots of bug fixes.
The fact that this kind of minor tweak makes news tells me that Wine sucks. I of course know that Wine sucks from personal and professional experience. To date, I have only gotten one program to work in Wine. That program was a key-generator that basically had the functionality of a lookup table.
