Try to understand Wine. Wine doesn't "use an OS", but implements the Win(32)
Api. There is nothing special about Wine and WinMe or Win2000, as the target
is to run applications without the need of any code supplied by the core OS
implementation of WinXX.  

However "core" applications of MS mostly use sophisticated and/or
undocumented features of the MS implementation of the WinXX Api, and those
applications have their problems with wine ( like many other applications due
to errors and/or omissions in the Wine implementation).
