The part you forgot is Linux (referring to kernel here) being the most 
successful FOSS project, used on super computers, stock exchanges, banks, 
etc. While Wine still in it's perpetual alpha-beta state, limited user base, 
and not recommended for production use.

Not saying that AJ's ways are all that bad, but obviously not giving the 
same results. Don't you think it's time to change things up a bit?
