Wine advances ActiveX support for Linux and GTA4

From the 'Run Windows on Linux?!'

For those Linux users that need or want to run Windows applications in LInux, here is some good news for you.

Wine 1.3.9 is now out, providing new stability and compatibility options. At the top of the list of new features in Wine (WINE is not an emulator) is the beginning of new ActiveX support in the browser.

Moving beyond ActiveX are a long list of fixes for Windows games that will now work on Linux.

Sure, Wine can be used for productivity apps, but Linux has no shortage
of those on its own. Some could argue that Linux doesn't have a shortage
of games either, but there always seems to be a few that people really
want to run on Linux, but are only available for Windows.
