I heard that Wine was *not* x86-only, but that if you ran it on, say, a 
SPARC, you just wouldn't have any luck running x86 Windows programs.  
You'd have to run SPARC Windows programs, which are a little hard to 
come by unless you write them yourself.

But if ActiveX controls were to be implemented via Wine on an ARM, it 
just might be possible to integrate them into a browser that runs on 
n810 and get a bit more Internet Explorer compatiblility.  Not that 
I'd want that, though.

By the way, is maemo closer to arm or armel in Debian?
