    It would be awesome if applications actually install without hacking WINE to hell and back.

    steam installs without any hack for example. imgburn only needs to be set to be aspi, lots of other tools work fine.

    Wine 1.1.22 detects the Radeon 4800 series out of the box now (does not count for 4300, 4500, 4600 series and probably more).

    It does, but for me it does look funny, and it's also really sluggish.

    As I understand it, it's not a case of Wine supporting ATI so much as it's a case of ATI supporting their drivers as well as NVidia supports theirs.

    People like to say that because PPRacer works great with their ATI card Wine should run Crysis just fine too.
