The idea is alright, but Wine is far from perfection. In fact, many large 
programs and 3D applications won't even run with wine. Why? First because 
it's still in Alpa fase. Secocond,  they depend on DirectX, and Wine only 
emulates the API part of Windows. You could use WineX, but that is an 
commercial program, so it cannot be shipped with FreeBSD. Third, Microsoft 
constantly changes the API code, and sometimes they don't publish 
documentation regarding the code.

Besides, who needs Windows programs anyway? You have everything you want for 
free, except for games.

Cheers,

Jorn.
