As soon as I looked through Salem Labs' site, I got in touch with Fred Gleason, Director of Broadcast Software Development for Salem Radio Labs, and told him I'd like to do a Q&A with him. He got back (and forth) almost immediately. Here's a selection from the dialog:

If you just look at the top-line results, it looks like Wine isn't just edging out XP, it's killing it! It won the majority, 67, of the total tests.
A closer look at the results, however, reveals that while Wine is remarkably good at letting users run Windows applications, it's not as good as that top number might make you think.

Myth or reality?
Sam is an installable livecd based on Mandriva Cooker and uses xfce4 as its desktop. I tested Sam about a year ago back when it was still a mini distro of approximately 200mb. At that time it wouldn't stay running long enough to permit us taking some screenshots. They released a full 700 mb preview of their upcoming 2006 release and we at Tuxmachines thought we'd check it out. How did Sam do this time?
Reaching the closed testing environment just hours ago has been the third BETA candidate for X2 - The Threat, which is presently being ported to Linux by the developers at Linux Game Publishing.
