the goal is to implement the win32 APIs on top of unix. this does

so why not support that efford by donating some of your time or money
(e.g. your employers) to fix the problems? recently there where the
auditions for the summer of code - why not advocate then to make things
better? why not try crossover's wine?
you have many options - but instead you have chosen to whine to a list
of developers that spend their free time to improve the things they have
problems with; what do you think this will help?

you state yourself, that lots of features (that are announce-worthy) are
for games and you think no one cares for games? do you think they are
done for the pure fun of it? have you actually checked the ChangeLog of
the current release? do you think all this changes in ole, msxml, &c.
dlls are done for the pure fun of it? if so - why not join the fun?
