Isn't the article about Linux, not Windows?

I found the article interesting because I run wine on my Linux machines. I'm not about to test whether wine will run a virus, but I sure do want to know if it will. Wine has come a long way, and I run several apps only written for the Windows platform. Now, I know that running wine will allow some minimal damage to be done to the user account's wine installation by certain viruses if the user is not careful. That's good to know.
