LXer: Introducing Winesharer - so pre-alpha it doesn't even work

Published at LXer:

Winesharer is my attempt to eliminate some of the file management problems inherent with Wine and the *nix filesystem hierarcy. Currently, Windows applications are installed in each user's home directory which provides security but at a cost of space - especially when the same application is installed multiple times for different users on the same system. By combining Wine with a union filesystem this problem can be eliminated. Winesharer is a collection of unfinished scripts I used to prove the feasibility of this. Now I'm passing the torch to the community so that they can burn this mess and write something that is actually usable.
