Looks great to me; although there are not any discussions yet (or are there?) 
in the "forums" area to demonstrate the quality of the forum interface, if 
it's something along the lines of phpBB, then it's perfect.

In my mind, the appdb is great, but better, threaded, discussion areas were 
needed for people to really get serious about it.

As for wine vs Crossover -- I presume that "plain old wine" users are welcome 
to participate?  If so, then there really isn't a problem.

One layout nit: the images on the top don't line up right in Konqy 3.1.5.  
Looks pretty interesting, I hope it catches on.
