Re: It's astonishing that Wine exists...

Hello:

... salute the folk who've worked on it ...

Indeed ...

... is it necessary any more?

For me, the answer is a resounding yes.

Wine and to a lesser extent, Judd Montgomery's J-Pilot, were the two applications that enabled me to finally open the Linux door for me.

Keeping my Pegasus email client, which at the time I had been using for almost 20 years, was the dealbreaker.

Although I tried many native Linux options, I wasn't able to find one that checked all the boxes.

Wine enabled me to use Pegasus Mail under Linux and I'm very happy with it.

As always, YMMV.
