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've said it before and I say it again. People are shitting their pants as the launch date for Windows Vista gets closer and closer. These folks have been doing Wine now for about 12 years. And now, as we are getting near to the point for their work becomes irrelevant, if its not already, they decide Wine is at beta level. This should serve as a lesson for all of us on what on not to do in software development: minimize copying and maximize new work..."

This is what I call I troll. LOL. I had a discussion with a person who came to me all excited because he saw a video of vista capabilities. Then I showed him couple of MAC/Linux thing. He could not show me anything new. Just like Apple says: "Redmond start your copy machines".
