I believe wine is intended for Windoze applications, while winex is for Windoze games (supports DirectX).
My guess is that non-games will work fine under winex, but not the other way around...
That being said, since wine/winex are supposed to be quite flaky, you might want to run both - each one for what it was intended.\"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.\"

CT has it pretty much right. WineX is just wine with enhanced DirectX support (for gaming). You can run pretty much any normal app under WineX, though, so you don't HAVE to have both installed."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
