Additional Comments

You need to install some things, to get it to work. I used winetricks command to do some extra work, like install windows corefonts, color profile, Internet Explorer 7, .NET Framework 2.0 (3.0 gives me errors), don`t install Flash because it can mess the native linux one (I installed flash x64, and I don`t open flash sites inside IE with Wine). Well, you can try to install what you think is best for Babylon to get working. I think that the only thing that doesn`t work is the html engine inside Babylon (even Gecko already been installed), that is necessary to open the language and dictionary window. Unfortunately, that language and dictionary stuff is the problem, i can`t put any word to get translated, but the interface is work.
