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.

Who knows, maybe in 3-4 years kids will be learning of the dismal failure of the Microsoft Corporation via some New Linux platform at school.... :

hmmm...Seeing as the main use of WINE is to run non-free windows software (eg. Dreamweaver, MS Office) that are dependant on Win32 API, which is controlled by Microsoft. This doesn't really make it a Microsoft killer at all.
