What does not

The built-in web browser, unless you install a newer version of IE that is greater than 6.5 through winetricks. CAVs no longer work, last time I checked, they worked with Wine 1.3.1. Some keyboard shortcuts for building do not work, like insert for duplication. Note: There may be extra errors that are not listed here

Additional Comments

This runs better on Wine then on Windows in my case. I do not have a graphics card and there aren't any drivers for DirectX 9 on Windows. I do think this should be between silver and gold because of the speed ( in my case ) and how well it works for being a somewhat complex program however, I rated this silver because it does not work "flawlessly" with all the known patches.
