Oh, on the other hand rest assured that Wine people have even more bad feelings
about Mono ;)

He's talking about failing to stabilize Wine.
Well, he's wrong, since we're not even really stabilizing Wine; we need to
implement tons of things first, and *then* can we talk about fully stabilizing
Wine, which should then be relatively easy.
It's quite obvious that Wine cannot be stable as long as significant amounts
of APIs aren't even implemented yet...
(and a sizeable part of those is dead easy, so it's simply a matter of
having enough man power in many cases)
