The death of Windows has been greatly exaggerated. That said, in the short term, the demise of Windows would make Wine even more important. If Windows gets so awful that people feel a need to move away from it, there will be an ugly transition period where they have a mix of new, non-Windows programs and legacy Windows programs, neither of which they can afford to give up. Wine could really ease the transition by letting people continue to operate their legacy programs without needing to keep a legacy Windows machine or VM running to do so.
