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.

Not a problem. Simply move the Wine project, in it's entirety to a non DMCA complying country, like say...France. Then stick your finger up at the damn yankees and tell them to fsck off. This is why copyright, software patents, DRM and the DMCA are all BAD. Get rid of all of them and we'll have some true competition and innovation in the market.

Or move to a country that openly supports open source, like Brazil.

The DMCA is not the problem here as it explicitly excludes from it coverage rverse engineering for the purpose of computer interoperability
