You're wrong; he was winning as long as he hated Big Brother and the Party; in the end he loves both, thereby not only confessing defeat, but also the victory of the Party. The ending implies that the situation will indeed never change and the Party will reign supreme for ever. Had he died hating Big Brother and the Party, I would say he had won.

I think that the ending really was a happy one. he was in so much pain and had been through so much that he deserved what he wanted the most. Release. Some people say that as long as he was alive, he was winnig. But how can you win if everyday you remember your losses and failures and are constantly reminded of how easily they came about.
