I'd vote for this just because it's a lot easier to run Windows apps under
Linux these days than DOS apps, but I'd rather they use something like SDL.
 Of course most of them won't, but hopefully enough of them will keep their
source free that someone will be able to port them anyway.  I'd rather port
a DX program than something with a lot of assembler.
