No, it is not theoretical, but it is mainly
about a DOS games and an MS linker, as for
me. The things I'd like to get working, but
the ones you may not care too much about:)
The particular game I want to get working,
is "Master of Orion 2" for DOS.

How about you just run it in dosbox instead of dosemu ?

Yes, that's a solution of course, but it is a bit like saying why
not use Open Office instead of MS Word.

A long term goal of wine is to support DOS apps to. Of course
it's not a priority, but it's there.
