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.

So am I to believe that Mono only runs on the desktop? Last I checked, .Net runs on both the server and the desktop, and therefore has just as much relevance in the IT realm as it does anywhere else. WINE will not survive w/o a presence in corporate IT...that's my point. And it simply cannot get a foothold in IT as long as MS reigns supreme.

No, the point is that webapps are not pertinent to this discussion featuring "Vista," "WinForms," and the relevance of "Wine" in the face of Mono and Vista. Wine's success or failure will have rather little to do with ASP.NET And trotting out webapps in a willfully-small domain to complain about your gripes with other discussions to flog on his wording is a total straw man.

Haha if that's what you think you are seriously mistaken my friend. If wine is to be a serious contender, it must take into contention anything/everything that is windows related...that means the Vista API, .Net...everything.
