We are of course talking about programming on Windows ...
The question is not "is it broken?" The question is "are there real
apps that work on Windows, for whatever value of 'works,' that don't
work in Wine?"
i.e. the apps that fail stupidly in Wine without Java, what do they
actually do on Windows without Java?
