Hah, have you seen the IDE ? have you run 'ldd' on it and checked that it 
does not use it ? until you can say that you did, I would be careful
with saying that someone 'does not have a clue' .

It most definitely DOES need that, it was even published on their web site, 
that initial versions of the IDE would use wine. I am not claiming that later
versions (when the CLX is stable enough) will still use it, but it was said
(don't have the URL anymore) that initial versions WOULD and indeed do use

Applications produced with the IDE will not use it, since they will use Qt;
but the IDE is another matter. The IDE is tightly bound to windows, with
it's use of the registry, BDE, COM and so on; it would not be realistic to
expect it to be ported in less than a year to a non-windows environment.
