Well some one wants to think that other people using Wine now. Well they don't. If a business related app does not work in Wine, no one wastes time on it. Thy just use windows. As simple as that. Because there are lots of apps they depend upon. Not just office.

The few "special" apps like Photoshop are exceptions. Most users of those apps don't need windows for nothing else. So if their "golden" application works on Linux - that's all they ever need.

And gamers ... well they can accept "half working" game. Slower, with graphical issues, bad sound, etc. Because those are just that ... games. Oh and they all tired of fighting windows to keep their games running. As they have pretty much same issues there as well.
