Well, it's a tricky question. We're aiming at the education market and I
have no idea how clued-up these people are. As a newbie to Linux myself,
working out how to get Wine working was a tricky problem, and I don't know
if it would be the same for others. Can I really expect a student to know
how to run a Windows executable via Wine on Linux?
