If Microsoft are looking for portability, then they're likely to have to follow the path of Corel in embracing the WINE libraries..

Exactly. Frontier already runs reasonably well in the WINE libraries. Microsoft could make it run perfectly. And keep it running. This is their back-door. It's how they keep their platform fresh. Update both Windows and WINE. If a feature doesn't appear in WINE we won't build on it. That keeps the whole thing working.
