most potential WINE users already own a Windows CD. This is obvious because
if you want to run a Windows program on Linux it is because you are
probably already using it, and this means you have Windows installed somewhere.
Now, if I have the Windows CD I can copy all the needed DLLs(and whatever
else) to the correct Directory.
Now my question how well does WINE run if you follow this approach?
If Wine doesn't work 100% doing it this way, I think this should be the
main focus, because after this works, it will be just a question of time
till we replace all DLLs with our own ones, one at a time.
What about DirectX? Can we use those DLLs? I suppose they need Windows
drivers so they might not work with Linux. But would it be possible to make
the Windows drivers work on Linux so that DirectX would run?
I think this would be a good intermediary goal, especially for all those
companies wanting to switch from Windows to Linux because they already have
