First, enter it into the Wine AppDb so this can get tracked. After
you do that I'll throw in my observations.
I have a machine with an older version of Wine - 20040505 - because
this runs some audio apps quite well. I quickly tried Simple Sudoku on
it and it seems to run pretty well. I don't know how to play but I can
call the app up, place it behind other windows, get it back again,
enter a few numbers in cells, etc.
One FRUSTRATING thing about many of these Wine apps is that I
cannot Alt-Tab into theb.
Also, after Simple Sudoku has been running my fan starts reving up
so Wine is taking lots of CPU:

100% going to wine-pthread. NOT GOOD! This is a P4 HT machine. Too
