+  informational messages such as the crash dialog, some standard error

 <p>We also need a 'QuickStart/Howto' document that would describe the basic instructions
   for installing and configuring Wine in a bit more details than the README while being much
   smaller than the Wine User Guide (it could actually be a chapter of that guide). Then that
