So a Chevy is a Ford emulator, because it can use the same gas, right?
No, of course not. Now, if the gas had to be converted to a completely
different substance before it could power the car, then it would
probably be an emulator.
WINE doesn't change the gas, it's just an engine add-on that just lets
you burn unleaded or diesel.
And so ends "Lousy Analogy Theater". We now return you to your normal
program, already in progress.
