[pkg-wine-party] Bug#649883: wine: Wine 1.0.1 - package not useful for anyone, error
Dear Sir, Dear Maintainers of Debian,
I would like to quote you the reply from Wine team from AppDB : "a version of Wine that old is not useful to anyone."
Wine from the current Debian is certainly un-useful for Anyone, according to Wine DB. Is our current Debian Stable old?
- Of course not, wine 1.0.1 is not "old", or relatively. We know that wine is much higher today in the version number.
I just would like to mention that :
- or we should think to provide a newer version of wine for current Debian stable
- or I dont know :)
I must say. Everyone is right.
Debian stable use the 1.0.1 because it is stable. It is great.
Although we post report for wine, it shall not be rejected to prone and say that wine works as Gold or Bronze just to make advertissement to the wine product.
Wine shall be fair with the users, and let mention the reality and not hide it, although the version is kinda old.
However debian is THE reference and this shall not be underestimated.
Lov' Debian. I support you.
I just note that wine 1.0.1 is fine. It works for most old win98, winxp, and so one. Why to update to last version when only little things can be fixed with little bash scripts or winetricks develpments
I am not so sure that the maintaining of Wine is fair.
It was just a note to us. A report to our strong debian community about our current debian stable. I do not believe that it might be old or that wine 1.0.1 is NOT useful to anyone. I do not.
Loving Debian !
All the best
