As a case in point I have this example of another language:
It was made by a genius inventor (Chuck Moore), and only runs from a
boot-floppy and writes pixels to the screen.
Someone made an environment in MS-Windows to emulate the
booting process and all. This actually runs colorforth.

Now about Wine, how good is it? Actually it is good enough to
run the above emulator!
(We run a third emulator, of the GA144, on top at a decent speed.)
