OSNews, Generic OSes I took them 15 years. During those years, the project grew from something that didn't work, to something that sometimes under special circumstances could maybe perhaps work, to something that sometimes just worked, all the way to something that works in a number of pre-defined cases. You won't believe it, but Wine 1.0 is here.

Member since:

I think Wine has always been about supporting Windows software, rather than about supporting a particular version of the win32 api.

On the site it seems to say that 1.0 must run:

Photoshop CS2 tryout
Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer 97 and 2003
Microsoft Word Viewer 97 and 2003
Microsoft Excel Viewer 97 and 2003

Which does not initially seem very ambitious, but I guess if they run perfectly then a lot of other software should work too.

The Wine 1.0 release criteria is here:
