Wine is usually used by persons who used or migrated from Windows before, including me.

There are still few windows based programs that I still need to run and lucky I can run it with Wine.

Because not all Windows programs can run with Wine even when the installation process run smoothly.

I think any applications which were made using MS Visual Basic 4 -32bit will run smoothly with Wine.
