That means no good for Mac users. With Leopard release Carbon (pure C)
is more-less deprecated API, Apple pushes all new functionality only
to Obj-C Cocoa, also there's is no 64-bit Carbon at all.
I don't want to argue what's wrong with Obj-C that it cannot go into
Wine code-base, but staying out of it won't ever bring full Wine
support for Mac users.

That's bizarre, but OK, every society has its own rules. I raised here
subject about implementation (or call it development) of some Wine
module (winequartz.drv), so I thought it is more adequate to post it
here, but if you call it user complaint alright, this list is "sending
patches" (even I thought wine-patches is the one) I cut this chit-chat.
