It's funny how you describe support for PCI-X as modern just in time when Intel obsoleted it (after 17 years on market): http://kingofgng.com/eng/2010/06/22/intel-says-farewell-to-pci-bus/

AFAIK, PCI and PCIX are not the same thing - the latter being PCI express which is the successor to PCI.

reactos previously had only PCI support, which was flaky at best.
It now has full PCI-X which should support most PCI cards with the exception of some new PCI-Express cards.
This PCI-X driver was also needed for embedded support such as ARM, which is also progressing quite well.

Anyway, this is about Wine, we should go back on topic ;)

PCI-X is something entirely different from PCI Express
