Installing, starting, attaching a project.
Both simple and advanced views are functional.
What does not
Requesting status from project server (runs into problems with RAS), using menu items from tray icon, uninstalling, and the BOINC screensaver.
What was not tested
Actually processing a project and anything pertaining to that.
When the project fails to use RAS to obtain project information, the backend of the software crashes, stating that it detected an unhandled exception.

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.
