[Wine] Re: Never had an app work in WINE

I think my basic problem is being overlooked. It doesn't matter what hardware configuration, Linux version, or WINE version I'm using. NONE of the many configurations or versions have yielded results, and it doesn't even matter what app I've tried to run. I have to conclude that I'm missing something fundamental, so I asked to be pointed to another source of information because the usual methods are not working for me. Is there a "WINE For Dummies" that doesn't refer to red or white? The newer graphic versions of WINE seem very intuitive, but something is not going through for me, and it's very frustrating.
I suspect atalaras is really referring to the forum posters rather than the developers because of replies from people like jorl17 and Bubblegum (whose feelings are summed up by jorl17). If a beggar on the street asks for a dollar, you either give it to him or you ignore him. You don't try to rob his self-esteem. Jorl17 you obviously know how to use WINE well, so please don't insult those of us who don't because it doesn't help anyone. We're not as knowledgeable as you, and without help we never will be. And until we can get to your level, there is nothing we CAN contribute in the way of help. That's like asking a janitor to teach a physics class. The difference between stupidity and ignorance is that ignorance can be fixed. I'm trying to fix my ignorance.
So I'll ask again. Can anyone point me to different source of info? If you're just going to flame, please don't reply at all. I'd like everyone to understand that I am not a programmer, developer, nor a Linux expert. Everyone starts at the bottom and works their way up.
