I'm assuming this was supposed to be in good humor.  There are others here that don't have such a thing as a sense of humor or it is on vacation.

One thing is that the fonts included with Wine do look bad.  Is there an effort to improve the appearance of them, aside from recommending the standard winetricks corefonts installation step?  

I suspect with the recent changes to MS's EULA, which is legally binding in the United States and in other places, that this method will soon become illegal and possibly impossible.  Witness WMP11 and other recently released programs from this company.
