Poor writing

Throughout the article, I see: a lack of grammar, repetitive or overly verbose statements, and overuse of the [note] tag. Anyone else want to correct this? T1nk3r3r (talk) 22:23, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Going to edit 'architectural differences' soon. Too much information that is already stated elsewhere. Not sure it even requires its own subheading. T1nk3r3r (talk) 02:49, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

"A win64 WINEARCH is meant to be able to run 32-bit Windows applications as well as 64-bit ones."

Not necessarily. From Wine64 page: "There are still some pointer to int32 casts that need to be fixed. Most of these issue an appropriate warning. " T1nk3r3r (talk) 04:43, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Sound

wine-wiki appears to be dead. I've used https://wiki.winehq.org/Useful_Registry_Keys to create sound reg keys.Tharbad (talk) 22:40, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

This relates to Tharbad's comment, so I'm responding here. Basically I did the same thing he did I guess. In my case, I was trying to get Rosetta Stone 3.4.7 running and could not get it to the detect the mic. So I basically did what I said I did in my edit: "...in a case where the microphone wasn't working in a 32-bit Windows application on a 64-bit stock install of wine-1.9.7, this provided full access to the sound hardware (sound playback and mic): open regedit, look for the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER → Software → Wine → Drivers, and add a string called Audio and give it the value alsa." I'm assuming this will make a lot of applications work, of course, which is why I added this text. Bolwerk (talk) 15:14, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Office 2013

Word, Excel and Publisher are usable (at least partially) with Crossover. OneNote needs Desktop Experience (windows feature), not sure if available at all for Wine or how to install. Powerpoint crashes. See this thread on the forum.
