Newer versions of Windows fail to support old applications that are
still supported by Wine. So Wine for Windows would supply useful
backward compatibility for users. Wine is already a better Windows
than Vista in a lot of cases ...

Wiki page: http://wiki.winehq.org/WineOnWindows

Note I'm also trying Wine on MinGW and Wine on Interix %-D

I note there's also a page on how to cross-compile Wine PE DLLs on
Unix: http://wiki.winehq.org/CompilingDLLsUsingMingw The Wine download
page includes a 2.5-year-old zip file of Windows DLLs from Wine
0.9.14, apparently built using this.

You wouldn't be saying that if you were trying the things I'm trying
to beat this into working ;-p
