I appreciate your frustration that you were unable to run or play the game
as well as you'd have liked, and whilst things aren't perfect yet, you're
welcome to avail yourself of the documentation on that appdb page
( http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=3731 ) or to ask other 
players (like me!) for help here, or better still there, where maybe the 
largest number(?) of prospective players will see it.

It's more than "possible" to play Counter-Strike: Source through Wine, though.
"Not possible" is just counter-true, and a bit misleading for other users. :p
