I can't say how many people have come to #winehq with different problems
that were related to winetools. From what I could see, not a single
person who I talked to had winetools installed and had Wine programs
No one had IE6 working if it was installed with winetools. Not a single
person with program that required IE6 installed had their program working
In each case removing ~/.wine directory and using manual installation
method from appDB worked.
Thus removing it from the official download page is a wise choice. I'm we
will still get number of users on wine-users and #winehq with winetools
related problems. But at least we will stop spread of "bad habits".
Remove winetools from download page.
