WineX? Isn't that a proprietary fork of WINE? What's wrong with these VirtualAcorn people anyway - can't they write stuff for non-proprietary APIs?

The user experience would be so much better if VirtualWhatever ran on an open toolkit rather than through some translation layer which tracks a perpetually moving target (the Win32 APIs) whilst providing users with a bizarre interface to their own system - fancy a virtual C drive, Linux users? And surely the benefit of WINE and its derivatives only kicks in when you don't have the source, unless your company is called Corel, of course.
