Don't you forgetting something? That something is windows. Do you really think
that being able to install that would help anything at all?

How about working game installers?

How about some newer copy protection systems that Wine could support (instead of NONE)?

How about keeping things from breaking in favor of extra new features?

How about making number of things not 100% perfect, but closer to what they should be
instead of chasing that perfection?

If you is didn't understand, lots of bugs & problems that you raise are not as critical
as you think they are. At least of bigger number of people.
