What makes you think that Wine would do so and that we would know? That
is why there is an Applications Database with applications that users
have tried to use and their successes. If there is no entry that means:
1. No one has tried before.
2. They have but have not recorded their success or failure.

Yes and no. CrossOver has specialized code that either cannot be
brought into Wine or will not. Their X11 build is outside of the scope
of this project.

Yes, they do but they add to those 'core libs' in a manner that is
specific to them. That is why they have their own support forums.

And other items. So does WineBottler and WineSkin for the Mac. We
cannot support them either and they have their own support mechanisms.

Ok. Then provide the information we have asked for. Dimensio and I
have pointed out the relevant portions of the FAQ. Your turn.

Since this is an open source project, you are welcome to look at the
Developer pages and start building code to make this happen. Or you
could ask the folks at CodeWeavers and they may or may not do this. It
all depends on demand and money.
Also are the SSE2 CPUs x86 complaint? If not, then there is MUCH more
work that needs to be done and that is outside the scope of this project
(Q-kemu is an x86 emulator project for the PowerPC platform and there
