    It's ca. 1 bug per day (without counting Saturdays and Sundays). If you take into account how many peoples are hired for the work and how many contribute for free then it doesn't look so great.

    If you won't count bugs which were fixed in earlier releases but reported for 1.2-rc3 then rate of fixing bug is even worse.

    Angry wine...

    It doesn't matter what version i am on, it simply doesn't work for me.
    The only thing I want from it - to play steam games, and it fails miserably at it.

    I have latest nvidia proprietary drivers, xorg 1.8 and many different 3d games working on me computer. Including many proprietary games, like savage, HON, ETQW, Survivor(both versions), etc... So I am pretty sure it's not my computer.

    Wine will always fail with games as its DirectX to OpenGL mapper will never be as fast as DirectX on Windows.

    Just raise your voice in the Steam Forum, so we hopefully get a native Steam client and many native games, soon:

    Before testing this Wine release be sure to have kernel 2.6.34 or greater.
    I remember there was a bug that had to be resolved at kernel level (Populous: The Beginning, Heroes of Might and Magic III, probably others too).

    Did this bug in Hmm3 cause frequent crashes of the game? Means its fixed?

    Well, after your comment I did a quick search, and yes, it seems one of them is related to homm3 crashing, though someone updated to 2.6.34 and still crashes.

    Populous fails to start:

    Homm3 hangs:
