The only trouble about Linux is that it's generally designed for and used
by ex-MS-Windows users. Wine actually has nothing to do with Linux at all.
It is a open source system designed to work on Posix compatible X-windows.
i.e. it runs on UNIX systems, it is also available for Linux systems.
A nations human decency can be measured by the
number of its citizens who phone or write their government
to improve the world.
