Hi Allan,

Yes, I think this would definitly fill a void. I myself for example,
haven't been very succesfull in getting Windows applications to work
with wine, or configuring wine the way I want to. Wine Doors sounds like
a promising project, but again I used it with less than optimal results.
I havn't tried cross-over or cedega yet, so screencasts about that would
be welcome to me personally as well :-)

As a sidenote, I think we should point people to alternatives (or places
where they could find them) as well, since native alternatives are
likely to work better than emulated originals.
And maybe we should even go as far as to recommend people to 'stalk'
their software vendor to produce a linux port of the application(s)?
