Arrow WINE v.s. Win4Lin (Comments?)

Has anyone tried both WINE and Win-for-Lin, and would like to comment on the relative effectiveness of the systems. I ahve used Win4Lin on a University worstation, but found that some things won't run on it. However, I havn't used WINE though I have heard good things about it.

some things won't run on any emulator.. sometimes if you really need to use an application designed for an os you need to use the os. wine and winex work well and have application compatibility lists. i've never used win4lin, because wine does everything i need..

Oh good - perhaps you can explain this message...

wine: relocation error: /usr/lib/wine/ symbol __fork, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file with link time reference

all these files exist.
