Wine's aim is to run Windows applications, not to implement everything
Windows has. Therefore Wine only implements things the Windows applications
depend upon. There are hundreds (if not thousands) APIs, or things that differ
in Wine in comparoson to Windows. That only starts to matter once there is
a Windows application that doesn't run due to that. Spending time fixing
differencies nobody cares about is a time loss.
