Excellent work. I will be doing a talk about Wine and one of the apps that I will be mentioning will be POL because of the time saver with so many games. Not only that but the ability to run several games at the same time without using the same window (Apart from other features).

Keep up the excellent work and know that this is helping Linux to remove one of the excuses many windows users have about moving to linux. Having the ability to play their favorite games on Linux just removes one of the biggest obstacles for a new linux user.
