Unless you only play 10 year old 2D games, you're not going to have a whole lot of fun playing games with Wine.
I agree that for new games it's safe to assume you're SOL as far as Wine is concerned. But what you describe is utterly false. Years ago (2006ish I believe) I played WoW solely in Wine. And that is hardly 10 years old, nor is it 2D. I also played through all of Half-Life 2 via Wine three or so years ago. Played lots of Warcraft III, and various other games.
Again, I realize none of those are brand spanking new. But they are far from 10 year-old 2D games. You say you don't like people spreading misinformation about it working better than it does. On the same token I don't like seeing people stomping it down making it out to be completely useless.
Only it's Japan. They actually sell real green tea over there. As in it isn't artificially sweetened like every god damn maker in the US does. Even Coca Cola sells the real deal over there.
And if you want real stuff here look for the Ito En brand. I live in South Dakota and was shocked when they started selling it at Target.
Do you have a letter I could subscribe to where you make known all things you approve/disapprove of? I'd hate to make a decision in life that you wouldn't be happy with.
Bringing computers into the home won't change either one, but may revitalize the corner saloon.
