And that is exactly why you should not _DEVELOP_ using libwine

That's not really a good argument. Software freedom is about choice. A lot of people don't have the option to quit Windows right away (if ever) so I give them the option of running software that runs on multiple platforms - the same as Mozilla, The Document Foundation, GIMP and a lot of others do.

Being Open Source and under a Free License, I can't keep anyone else from recompiling my software to run on Windows, so why shouldn't I do it myself?
