I don't think it's a fair comparison. Wine is an emulator and its developers have to cope with Windows flavours, quirks and changes, in order to make it compatible with tons of software, as well as keep it updated with the host OS. SkyOS is a closed source project and an independent OS. I'd say the SkyOS team have hardware compatibility issues to cope with: drivers to test and hardware to keep updated with.
