Just my opinion, but that's a terrible idea to put in the 1.0 
announcement. The impression I get after reading this is (1) wine is 
full of glitches, and (2)  it's being released with 80% of the apps not 
working well.

If you're trying to appeal to new users and/or sponsors you should put 
more focus on the positives. I don't see Fedora saying "Release features 
include X, Y and Z, but X has a bunch of bugs" (X might be full of bugs, 
but you don't point this out in your release announcement ).
