There is no Wine for Windows. There are some of us pottering about
with it in our spare time :-)



1. It doesn't compile.
2. Even if it did, it wouldn't be able to launch Windows programs in Wine as-is.

Mostly it's an exercise for the moment.

It is, however, a desirable thing, as newer versions of Windows
jettison compatibility with older versions of Windows.
