Well, tell this to Alexandre as he removed the '-h' stuff some time ago (we
got more cases of people having problem with the 'wine foo.exe -- -a -b'
syntax than with the '-h' problem).
As for the 'Start Menu', it's a packaging issue, not really a Wine issue per
And finally, why should we prevent people from running Wine as root ? I
played the complete MI3 game as root (to have DGA support) and it worked
just fine :-)
I still have problem with this whole discussion(s): people who do not know
Linux should never use a command line window and should do everything from
the start / run / foot / ... menu from their favourite distribution.
If someone starts Wine from the command line, I certainly expects him/her to
be at least knowledgeable enough in how Linux works.
So effort should be spent on Desktop integration instead of futile stuff
like adding '-h' help message or a 'running as root' protection.
