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.

He's a troll. With or without a SWF implementation, Mono is still incomplete when not even considering all of the platform bindings people would actually use if anyone developed desktop software with .NET. When considering them, you have to wonder where exactly a Managed DirectX is going to spring forth from. Which cavity is that going to magically fly out of nowhere to go into Mono? Because that's what the world will look like if Microsoft is ever successful in pushing managed development onto its ISVs.
