I am nowadays mostly using Linux for development, but I also have my Wine development stuff also set up on OSX, and it is working okish. Some things are better(e.g. the GL profiler is cool, if it works), some things are troublesome(e.g. it is generally slower, some newer extensions are missing).
I'd prefer MacOS over Linux in a VM. Linux vs MacOS directly on the hardware is a matter of taste and where you feel at home. The advantage of Linux is that if you have a situation where something behaves oddly there are more people who know your platform. On the other hand, Wine could certainly use more Mac devs.
My Linux is installed on a USB disk with an EFI bootloader so I can comfortably boot it on OSX by holding down the Alt key. However, the reason for that are other machines, not the macbook.(switch work environment quickly without maintaining 5 installations),
PS: I don't intend to interpret Henri's words, this mail is meant as a general MacOS+Wine development experience report.
