Windows After roughly 12 years of work, the Wine Project is about to take its widely used Windows translation layer to a place it has not been in all that time: beta. Wine Project leader Alexandre Julliard, who has worked on the software nearly since its beginning in 1993 and maintained it since 1994, said in an interview yesterday that the beta release is "a matter of days away." He has since updated that forecast and said it would be released on Tuesday, October 25th.

I was just as comfortable, maybe even more, on my amiga in 1992. The change has been evolutionary not revolutionary.

"Without Microsoft, chances are that you wouldn't BE on your comfy little PCs at home talking on all these nice forum sites."

Uh, huh. Would that happen to be the Microsoft that almost missed the Internet? Or the Micro-soft that would still be doing stop lights if it wasn't for IBM? News for you. There were home computers before there was a Microsoft.
