    when a user will be able to plug a game based on microsoft runniing it without any other instance, then wine will worth the effort.

      For most of the indie games I play, that's already true and, for most of the rest, it's something that an older Windows version would also require, like installing a Visual C++ redistributable... and, on genuine Windows, it's not as simple as winetricks ....

      (Though I will admit that it's made a little bit more inscrutable by Wine having incomplete rather than completely missing implementations of said vcredist DLLs, which prevent a clear "could not find foo.dll" message.)

        The primary issues where Wine and Proton fall short involve heavy handed anti-cheat/drm as well as games that are installed via the Microsoft store. Compatibility is actually pretty good all things considered. Wine still falls WAAAY short outside of gaming, however. Very few, if any of the Top 100 Windows applications currently run on Wine. None of the newest Adobe products work, for example. Office doesn't work. Visual Studio doesn't work. I could go on...

          Are you able to test this two games? Alone in the dark the new nightmare and Tom's Clancy's Splinter Cell? thanks
          Is it not more simple to convert games in linux format? As example: to convert a game as Splinter cell in linux way? A program able to convert games should be useful. A sort of regenerator.

            I'd really like to see the Cuda support from wine staging get promoted to whatever the main wine is called(mainline/stable?). Or any improvements on getting it setup and working so that applications that use it can properly detect it as available(not much info on how to troubleshoot that).

              Office works but you have to stick with older version like Office 2013. I don't know does Office 2016 already work these days..

                I dont think the ms store plays that much of a role. We have epic,gog, ubi store, battle net and steam. Many of which work fairly well with wine.

                Of course you sometimes have copy protection and anti cheat systems that dont work, but wine is constantly evolving.

                  Is there any roadmap for the Wine project?
                  Is there any page detailing what is fully implemented, what is partially implemented, and what is not implemented?

                    Could someone explain why I should want to install a driver in wine so that "Support for installing plug-and-play drivers." would be necessary?
