Xandros is a Debian based distribution.  We actually offer CrossOver 
Office to our users, so Wine is not available via XN as a packaged 
download.  The last time I checked, the current stable Debian packages 
are quite old, and the newer ones from unstable won't install due to 
newer glibc dependencies.

You can however build and install Wine from source and run it on 
Xandros.  I do this on a regular basis.  To do this you need to install 
all the development tools and dependencies for the build.  Contact me 
directly and I'll see if I can help.
