Not to mention a multitude of programs that SHOULD run--but just dont like it(Worms Armageddon, for one... though dunno if it works on wine)

A few attempts here:
I gotta say, the news isn't good: it doesn't even compile yet!
(And if it did compile under Cygwin, win16 is presently disabled under Cygwin.)
If you think you can beat Cygwin or Interix into successfully
*compiling* Wine, that'd be a great start :-D
