Please just remove “on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such
as Linux, Mac OSX, & BSD”.  (In addition to what John noted, that it
runs on other OSes is not relevant for Guix users.)

I was wondering whether it made sense to include Wine at all in the
distribution.  But I know that it’s used notably by free software
developers who test for portability (Simon Joseffson mentioned using it
notably, see <>), so that’s
one reason.
