WINE Is Not an Emulator. What it does is implement Win32 system
calls. Or did I get it wrong.
As for the "box", It can run in three modes. Win32 app windows appear
in a desktop window managed by X Window manager, Win32 app windows
directly managed by the X Window Manager, and finally, Win32 windows
unmanged, in which case you'll get the native look and feel for
window frames etc.

Did you look at the wine apps database at winehq and codeweavers?

I would like to see people using winelib so they can produce
executables that can run on UNIX without too much effort.
