Everything I tried in a few minutes: units, multipying dimensional quantities, plotting y=x^2 in 2D, loading a several page engineering worksheet with 2D analysis plots, changing a few parameters and seeing the calculation flow downwards.
What does not
If you do not have a printer installed, a pesky and resilient dialogue box warning appears. Ignore the box's internal buttons and use the OS window frame closure button to dismiss this. Mathcad appears to run fine afterwards. This seems to be avoidable by configuring a printer.
What was not tested
Longer, more detailed usage. 3D plots. Looks functional so far...
Needs Windows 2000 compatibility mode in winecfg. Doesn't install with wine's default settings until this or similar aged compatibility level is selected. Yay! Go Mathcad!
