Works with Windows 98 and NT 4.0. The BOINC website claims it should work with Windows 95 but the installer refuses to continue.

What does not
What was not tested
When installed as a service, BOINC closes when boincmgr closes. I don't think this is the intended behaviour. Needs testing on a Windows machine. Tested using X over SSH. No overrides. BOINC 5.8.16 SETI@home v7 7.00 windows_intelx86

BOINC is available for a wide array of platforms, and a lot of platforms are supported by the projects. You are probably better off asking a project to support your platform than using Wine to translate Windows calls.
It should be possible to use a native BOINC and run a Windows executable with Wine if absolutely necessary.
Test results for BOINC are still welcome as they help developers with Wine.
