WINE 1.1.6 Supports X11 Desktop Work-Area
Phoronix: WINE 1.1.6 Supports X11 Desktop Work-Area
What is a X11 desktop area?
Wine already does pretty good support for fullscreen apps (you can actually alt+tab out of it, unlike 99% of linux games! It's amazing. Only other game that actually does that properly is Savage 2).
@ Michael Larabel:
The correct way to write Wine is not WINE, but Wine. http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-8b4f...f5b7f0e8d25f2e
I know, it's just a habit of mine though.

With Wine 1.1.6 i have massive soundprobs, sound is very studdery.
Can anybody confirm this?
With Wine 1.1.5 sound works very well.
I can confirm that Wine 1.1.6 has sound problems. Noticed them in WoW, things were very crackly and generally just nasty.
Thought it might've been a problem with Wine, so I launched with 1.1.5 instead and it worked fine.
