Fortunately there are many of us running 100%/99% Free systems and we're 
extremely grateful for the work that you do. No, it isn't wasted. ;)

I think people understandably get very excited about the possibilities 
provided by crossover projects and it can be nice to have something to 
counter "I bet your Linux box can't do That" with. Personally I might think 
about getting excited when manufacturers start bringing out native linux 
games. I'm sure the highest purpose of Linux is something to do with the fact 
that we don't have to tied down to such a limited perspective.
