So, I seem to have an IQ of 0, but still I at least seem to be able to
use a mail client. Seems like these things really are easy to use these

I haven't used winetools in a long while, but back when I did, I could
use it to run programs I couldn't run on plain wine myself. If I'm
running an older system, I can still use that exact version of wine a
winetools, and that program is still running. Could you explain on how
that gives it "no point in existing AT ALL, PERIOD"?

Could I assume that the 2.4 Linux Kernel I'm running on my router
doesn't have any point of existing, either, just because it's outdated?

Sheesh, if people spent as much time fixing winetools (or wine, for that
matter) as they did writing emails about why winetools is bad, this
discussion would be utterly useless and without a point AT ALL, PERIOD.
