Well, you and I seem to have very different opinion on Wine. For you, it's a
way to run a particular application. For me, it's like a virtual PC running
Windows on my Linux box (ie more like a VMWare or a terminal server /
Metaframe approach).

For me, running 'explorer' (or whatever is called the Windows WM) in a
desktopped Windows session and actually have the 'Start' button in the lower
right corner of the window to start Windows applications would be the way I
would prefer running Wine.
