    That wasn't my point! Point is that Fedora requires 1.3 G on installation garbage to get an halfassed Windows subsystem re-implementation set up. Knowing this, I can easily install twice or third that size and get a real Windows system that actually operates "correctly" (in terms of Windows).

    I remember times where Wine took less than 300mb for an full installation. These days Fedora bundles 32bit as weill as 64bit. No matter if you "need" the 32bit stuff (if you run Windows 64bit programs only) or not.

    I guess it is a few decades since you ran any sort of live windows version then....

    Installing from optical media is like everything else in WINE, hit or miss, it very much depends on the game, the amount of DRM etc. In many cases you can mount the CD ROM/DVD and double click on "setup.exe" and it will work. There are sometimes troubles with swapping media so if it's only on a single disk, your chances are improved.

    That said, this forum isn't really the best place to discuss getting started with wine, you'd be better off becoming familiar with https://www.winehq.org/

    The media disc is really just a path in Linux so Wine should be able to. The only real problem is how well the application works with Wine.

    Its more of having full unrestricted access to what's happening instead of crossing things out.

    I don't know about macOS but, on Linux, Wine automatically creates drive letters for any detected removable drives, so it'll Just Work™ if you're using a real optical drive or CDemu.

    Seems the "Esync" patchset was disabled in wine-staging here: https://github.com/wine-staging/wine...2a4893c7fe196f

    This leaves the current "Fsync" patches unusable, but i am not sure that is just an "easy fix", or if it needs more work to get up and running.

    For all i know, "all syncronization issues and performance increases" are now fully up to par in wine-5.10... but i somehow have a slight disbelief towards that :P I really enjoy browsing the staging git to figure out "what the hell happened now" rather than a clean and readable changelog. But hey... "If you want it better, do it yourself.. be happy someone even bothers" blablabla
