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)
