If you like Wine, Ubuntu has Debian beat hands-down.  The reason is that
I build the Ubuntu Wine packages, and they're actually kept up to

If you still insist on Debian, you might be able to get them to work.  I
don't do it myself, but quite a few users have reported success with the
Dapper packages on Sid.
