What was not tested

Video Capture, Fullscreen, Windows Media formats (I couldn't install wmp10 due to validation nonsense, if you can't either I suggest using cross-platform formats like mpeg).

Additional Comments

There have been problems with generating text in Vegas, I've had that problem as well, a simple workaround for that is to press the Enter key on your keyboard every time after you type something. For example, if I wanted to type QWERTY in the Text Generator, I would just type in QWERTY and press Enter so the text shows up. The same goes for changing outline and shadow color for text. Before installing Vegas in Wine, I recommend creating a 32-bit Wine prefix set to Windows XP for those on 64 bit machines. If you're a newbie at Wine, I recommend reading
