Wine now supports DOS applications natively, which means that you can now
run MS Windows 3.x in standard mode. Some have reported success in running
(to varying degrees of success) various C++ compilers, and the Borland
Dephi and Turbo Pascal for Windows compilers. Others have reported success
in running the Borland C++ 5.0 command line compiler (bcc) as well as some
of the debugging tools in the MS SDK, but these compilers' IDEs generally
do not run.
