I recommend both the 2nd and 3rd approaches for most vendors.
(You want approach #2 because some customers won't
want to bother knowing about Wine,
but you also want approach #3 because customers
who know about Wine will be very upset if they
can't at least try your app in their own copy of the latest Wine.)

You can always go back and use approach #1, or something
like it, later if you find that the Windows interface isn't making
users happy.
