Wine is buggy and far from perfect, but the ReactOS userspace DLLs are apparently even worse, thus they're trying to go from the proverbial fire into the frying pan that is Wine.

But Wine isn't necessarily that far: 70000 APIs sounds like a lot, but 90% applications together use maybe 10% of those.
