Sure. because only 'hardcore Linux users' use Wine. That's just what I see 
every day when I look into #winehq. Hardcore Linux users who never need help 
with the basic questions of compiling Wine from source or updating to the 
latest Wine release, but who are stopped from running their games^Wprograms 
by Wine.
