Does it not compile on ARM or what is the holdup? Can an ARM build of wine still run x86 windows binaries? I can see getting this ported into android/davlik gui might take some time but what about running it in like an X server on the phone and vncing to it from the android ui

As far as I know, Xorg conflicts with surface flinger, so the only option is to run a vnc viewer to connect to the x server. The upside is that it's local instead of across a network so it is every bit as snappy as native Xorg. The downside is (at least in my experience) that compositing and special effects don't seem to work over vnc.

I wasn't done, but my cat head butted my phone lol..

Anyway, once you've set up a full emdebian environment using something like botbrew basil, I don't see why work couldn't start on porting wine and testing it and Windows applications. I know that's already in the works according to the article earlier in the thread, but I think this was could also work and you're definitely on the right track

Good question, but honestly, I don't know... Maybe someone else knows...
