Or how about this:
( ) Doesn't work at all [Garbage]
( ) Starts, but not very usable [Bronze]
( ) Basically works, a few bugs [Silver]
(*) Works flawlessly [Gold]
[x] Needs Wine configuration (Windows version, sound options, regedit entries, etc.)
[x] Needs a Windows DLL (has legal issues)
[x] Needs a third party hack (has legal issues)
If Gold and no tick boxes are selected: Works out of the box! [Platinum]
The Extra Info tick boxes could be represented as icons accompanying the color-based Status wherever it goes. The icons should probably give a negative impression. A red color for example, although that might not get across very well, considering the color palette of WineHQ... ;)
The "has legal issues" should link to a Wine Wiki page which explains exactly what those issues are and that specific discussion on how to get those things working is not allowed at winehq.org, the mailing lists, the newsgroup or the IRC channel.
Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your home page.
