Never. Even Microsoft can't achieve 100% for new versions of Windows and
they have their source code.

I don't know. What are you specifying and where?

Why? If things are autodetected and set up automatically and just work,
surely that is better?

Wine uses fonts from your distro. It can sometimes pick inappropriate

CrossOver Office has over 12,000 lines of Perl code to deal with the
complex problem of integration with the desktop in this way. Wine has
support for one or two standards of creating menus and desktop links. If
you can code, you should add support for your window manager standard to
winemenubuilder, otherwise you could just advocate for all of the
distros and desktop environments to standardise on one way of adding
menus, links and associations.
