>Is there an effort to produce a wine certification? A badge/sticker that can be placed on a product to say "also runs on Linux using wine"
>Or perhaps, where the OS badges are placed a little tux and glass of wine.
>This would give companies an easy way to get there app running on Linux and provide a reason for them to contribute to Wine.
>Perhaps more important even than the badge would be some active courting of software producers. To let them know that they can easily open up a whole new market and generate a lot of good-will and publicity in the computing/IT community by adopting this early.
AudioScribe used to do a great promotion of its popular transcription product running under wine. Sadly (?), the program now has a Linux version also. But they still recommend the wine version because it runs more proprietary formats.
