Let me say right up front I'm infected with some sort of cold come

As an avid follower of Linux Haters blog I notice yet another
incredulity this morning, Wine is bragging about getting Google Chrome
to run on Linux!

How come Google Chrome, supposedly born of open source code, is for
Windows? And why, as LH says, does the community have to lash up some

the rich can afford to do anything with it the rest of us end up with
scraps and have to 'make do' with a glass of wine.
Cough, cough, splutter, splutter come here and let me breath on you.
