"Olinux: What you do in Wine?"

"Julliard: A little bit of everything... my speciality is mostly in the low-level areas like memory management, threading, etc. Plus of course studying incoming patches and merging them into the source tree."

"OLinux: Are there business companies or any other type of organization that finances Wine development? How did corel investment and support change wine�s development?"

"Julliard: There is no organisation putting funds directly into Wine, but there are companies having people work on Wine; of course the major contributor in this area is Corel, with a lot of people working full-time on Wine."

"Corel's involvment has done a lot for Wine, mainly by addressing areas of the code that had been a bit neglected until then, and also by doing extensive testing of all their office suite under Wine and fixing all the problems they encountered. Wine is definitely much better now than it would have been without Corel's help."
