Nah... Some people (like me) doesn't want to have windows at all.

Sadly, karma is a b**ch and now I got a Win VM :)
Yet, you won't need windows just to run a single app occasionally.

I don't claim that wine is great, but it is useful .

For me porting WINE to the BSD family is not worth it and utterly useless.

On the other side  ZFS is a more reasonable approach and if anyone asks -  I 
think that openBSD can securely host VMs and in such use - ZFS or LVM can be 
quite useful.
