Darwine for an intel macintosh computer is actually wine. There is no difference. The project was originally created to use qemu to emulate and allow ppc architectures to use wine. My problem is that the latest compiled wine for osx is on kronenberg's website which is 1.0-rc-1. I was hoping to test some applications on rc-2. The reason that winehq.org lists for not having a binary for mac os x on intels is that there is a problem with the x11 windowing environment that make wine not as great as it could possibly be and that the wine group does not want to give a bad impression of its software. If you search the website you can find it James. As I said before the instructions on compiling for os x from the wine website say to tell the installer the version through the terminal. My problem with this is that I am hasty to believe that this is kept up to date as the new release candidates are.
