Alexandre Juillard from the Wine project was interviewed on the December 17 episode of LugRadio. When asked whether he thought Microsoft did a good job designing Windows, his response was “Oh, no. Definitely not. No, no. It’s a huge piece of crap and we find more crap every day.”
The Wine developers probably have a better understanding of Windows’ internals than anybody outside of Microsoft. Anybody that has used Windows for an extended amount of time already knows that Windows is crap, but it was interesting to hear the thoughts of someone with deep technical knowledge of Windows’ inner workings.
