Do you know if there's a mailing list for WINE?

Thanks.

Sorry, but did you look closer at the win32 API? And WINE?

- Win32 isn't as easy to implement as it looks. Especially if it comes
to threads and the like.
- WINE has started support for WIN32 and it looks promising.
- The Linux kernel supports threads AFAIK.

BTW, _EVERYBODY_ is welcome to join the WINE effort. We could need some
help.
