I wasn‘t suggesting using WINE to run Windows software on MorphOS/x64 (which wouldn‘t work anyway as WINE translates to Linux/Unix API specifically), but that your suggestion of a „translation layer, which allows MorphOS for x64 to run [...] Linux x64 software“ would require something *like* WINE (as opposed to something like Trance).
WINE is huge package, as I read the discussions in past porting it would more or less mean rewriting it. Unrealistic.
