Last week, after 15 years of development, tempered by the need for arduous reverse engineering, the WINE project released version 1.0
. What "1.0" means for WINE is neither that the project is finished
, nor that it is perfect, but rather that the software runs a small subset of specific freely downloadable Windows applications
. That's not to say it doesn't run scads of others, too -- the apps database
is proof that thousands of programs run to at least some degree. Here's your chance to ask WINE developer Jeremy White
and WINE project lead Alexandre Julliard
(both of Codeweavers) about the future of WINE, or any other questions about the project that cross your mind. The usual Slashdot interview rules
apply; please ask as many questions as you'd like, but limit yourself to one question per post. We'll pass on the best questions to Jeremy and Alexandre for their answers.
