ZDNET UK: IBM dismisses Corel’s Wine plans

“Linux running Windows applications using Wine is slow, naive
and just plain daft, according to IBM’s software marketing manager
Tony Occleshaw.”

“Following last week’s revelation by Corel that it is working
with Wine to bring all Windows applications to a desktop version of
Linux, Occleshaw dismissed the plans citing his own company’s
experience with emulation software: ‘Corel said all this when they
were porting all their applications to Java which fell on its
bottom. Wine sitting on Linux running Windows applications is just
too complex.'”
