What is Wine?
Wine is a free, open source application for running Windows software on operating systems that are normally not supported. With Wine, you can install and run these applications just like you would in Windows.

Allows you to use Windows apps on Linux
allows to run much Windows software on Mac or Windows.
First. Fork Wine! Save the planet! incompetent and toxic developers, project leaders. Incompetent and toxic admins at Wine's forums who blame you for no reason and suppress discussion.
The only "argument" they know is I can ban you: https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=36872 https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=36888
Don't wait!!! Call the police. Don't speak to them!
Secondly. Don't expect smart things from Wine, like increasing log verbosity after a crash. See my comment about the lack of session logs...
Almost impossible to install. Tried many times from different places. The furthest it gets is appearing in installed extensions. But you can't run it, nothing opens it. Correction: it installs but won't do anything.
Many bugs around Windows Installers. Wine cannot replace Windows here.
Not user friendly with several Wine prefixes. All users have to do many manual tasks because some Wine users and some Wine developers are troublemakers...
Maintainers or super maintainers at at appdb.winehq.org can heavily modify test results without history of their actions.
