> Thanks for the advice, but I have to say it sounds a bit like "Eat the  mushroom you've been warned against unless you really know it will do you harm." As a newbie I'm still trying to figure out which apps I'll want to use and how to get ,install and evaluate them. Whether some version of wine will have "regressions" (what are they?) that will break something I try to use - or what sorts of frustration I'll be faced with trying to fix the break - is not anything I have a clue about. I don't see the point of risking that when a) I don't have to and b) I don't yet really know what I'm doing.
> What I do know is that the winehq pages carry a warning against the latest releases and suggest I use 1.0.1 instead. So it's a mystery why I'm then unable to find it and am even being advised here, not to look for it. Are you saying the warning has no validity?

To me it's a question of what is better an incomplete "stable" version
wine that was created months ago that is known to have bugs or a
version of wine that has fixed some of the bugs in the "stable"
version and made it more complete but may have a few more unknown bugs
