The Wine team has released Wine 3.0. The main new features and improvements are:

  • Direct3D 10 and 11 support.
  • The Direct3D command stream.
  • The Android graphics driver.
  • Improved DirectWrite and Direct2D support.

You'll get it through your distribution of choice, or you can build or download it yourself.

Here's hoping all that goodness makes its way to ReactOS soon.

I'm sure they've already merged what they can at the moment

Edit: Looks like it was merged this morning: https://github.com/reactos/reactos/search?q=wine&type=Commits&utf8=~...

Or as we call it, "the authentic Windows experience."

No. The Unix wars ended long ago & Microsoft steadily rose to the top during it all. There very likely won't be any more OS wars within our lifetime. That's just how it is.

OS wars happens when a new form factor becomes mainstream, so it all depends whether we 'll see a new form factor in our lifetimes. We probably will.

In my lifetime (I'll be 40 in 2 months), I've seen many form factors. Almost none of them brought OS wars. The Unix wars weren't about form factors. Form factors have their own wars. Sometimes OSes are a part of those wars, but they're not usually involved in their own wars simultaneously.

By "Direct3D 10 and 11 support" do they mean the whole thing, or the usual half-support which is good for the 3 most popular games and everything else works in a broken fashion, sometimes with regressions between minor versions?

Case in point: Can I run this game using Wine?

That was last tested against Wine 1.7.17 (development branch) on the 24/04/2014. Since that testing is very old, it is quite possible that will install and run now.

There are two branches of Wine, one is the stable branch that receives bug fixes only and the other is the development branch that is released usually every other week.

So if you are worried about regressions, use the stable branch.
