decide time

  1. Because Wine is not an emulator.

    80.0%
  2. Because the OSes that would need a Windows compatibility layer are cheese.

    26.7%
  3. Because actual Windows drives the people who'd need to use a Windows compatibility layer to drink.

    26.7%
  4. Because it gets the other OSes drunk enough to run Windows programs without realizing it.

    What sucks is that they made it even more appealing to hipsters by literally calling it "macOS" without the capitalization.

    OS X (saying it like "ex" instead of the numeral it represents) made it sound really sleek.

    You use Wine to get Linux/MacOS drunk so it doesn't realize it's running Windows applications.
