wine is hit and miss because they are having to go by the documented APIs and there ane quite a few that are not publically documented.. so if a program uses those undocumented APIs, then the programmers have to take the time to figure out what exactly those APIs are and how to write code to interpret the calls made by the program to the system..
short version: microsoft won't fully document their APIs.Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
