    Correct.

    No it does not. There are still the 64 bit and 32 bit versions of wine. There are still not doing the windows slide of hand in the wine 64 bit prefix so that applications expecting the 32 bit style prefix layout work. Yes you can run 32 bit windows applications in a 64 bit wine prefix but these are the win32 applications that expect the 64 bit prefix layout or the ones under windows that are not needing compatibility mode dirty tricks.

    Even using hangover that has the 32 bit and 64 bit working with the same 64 bit back end parts due to qemu bridge does not avoid the multi prefix problem.

    The requirement to declare variables at the top of the scope is extremely painful.

    The biggest issue with StarCitizen is that damn launcher, it has always randomly crashed for me and also fails to verify or install files...

    enjoy
    You're free to create your superior solution in C17 or newer, with Wayland support and completely based on Vulkan. Then maybe people would donate money to your efforts too.

    Usually I find C99 is preferable (mainly for integration with existing libraries) however do keep in mind that Wine is a compatibility layer and as such needs to one day support platforms you might not even have heard of. The way C89 works means that it is simpler to build compilers for and as such it could end up being the only compiler available for a platform. For this reason alone I believe it is justified. Also consider that Microsoft Visual C++ didn't fully support anything other than C89 even in their 2017 release!

    Why does C89 bother you personally?
    Seems he feels like everything newer that he uses has to be supported or the devs suck lol.
