There aren't really any MUST-HAVES for wine. WINE is used to run Windows programs on linux, so just use it to run the windows software you can't live without.

I usually use it for games.

I'm pretty sure he means "top 5 best programs for wine"

I don't use it much, but I do use it for Firefox cause for some reason I can watch shows on abc.com without it

For me that would be StarCraft, Counterstrike Source, Team Fortress 2, Warcraft III. These days I'm more interested in native commercial games though. I have UT2004, Quake 4 and Neverwinter Nights Platinum among others.

If you are 100% Ubuntu then you don't need Wine. Wine is for running Windows software.

I don't understand what you're trying to say. Wine makes Windows software work in Ubuntu - there is no difference between Linux software and Windows software if it works perfectly in Wine.

It's arbitrary to say that Neverwinter Nights is somehow more "Ubuntu" than Warcraft 3 because it uses SDL instead of Win32. The underlying providers of those libraries are 100% Ubuntu free software.
