Look here:

There is no support for ubuntu 7.10, nor for AMD64.
The wine version in ubuntu repositories is increible old, so there isnt support of ubuntu for wine eider. To install any current app i have to add tons of external repositories, that doesnt happens with debian or gentoo.
I wont install ubuntu 8.04, it requires to download 1Gb or reinstall from scratch, if i do that, i wont ever install ubuntu again, i havent had that much of problems in any other distro. AND too much people have been get in troubles by updating to 8.04 and a simple update shouldnt be that hard, at least, it isnt in gentoo.
