It's weird. Yes, your article is very informative, but opens up new questions (I'm a noob, so I follow it, but there a big field of "unknowns" for me - so feel free to ignore my plea to extend the text).

I would add a better paragraph title in where it says "This saves some time," and "All in all, this can save a lot of time." (notice the redundant use of the same approximate sentence - change one of them, or shorten it). It's downplaying the fact that Box64 is AMAZINGLY BLAZING FREAKING FAST!!!
It should be titled: "Where does box64 get it's speed from" or have text that says: "and that's where the speed boost comes from" or "that's the secret of the near-native speed".
It's not ok to downplay this little fact; because it's the key feature of the software. And we love it for exactly that.

Thanks! (Yes, I'm the one who wrote it :))

Which ones? I can try adding the answers if needed. (After all, I know how box86 works so it makes sense, especially the wrappers since it's something I upgraded through my script, but for someone who doesn't it can be quite abrupt -- the "Inner workings" was also like that...)

Ah yes, I've edited that part. Thanks.
