Let's not kick the virus writers

I suspect that some of the trouble the virii had was an incomplete WINE implementation, or missing DLLs. It's hard to blame the virus writers, since the EULA in most virii clearly states that only recent versions of Windows are supported.

But seriously, I enjoyed the article and it cleared up some speculation about how a virus might perform in WINE. Maybe you could test your virii against Codeweavers Crossover product to see if they get any further.
