Hi Alex,

Firstly, Wine is not an emulator, it it a binary loader and an 
implementation of the Win32 API.

Different companies have different goals.  For CodeWeavers, the goal is 
not to full emulate any version of Windows, but to allow more useful 
applications that were originally written for Windows to work.

IMO, the best way to contribute to Wine is to test applications, and 
write patches to fix them :)
