What works

It actually performs some functions faster running under Wine than it did under Windows XP.

What does not

It took a while to get the fonts somewhat readable, and they're still a little funky. The status bar on the bottom is distorted a bit. There are some minor, minor graphics issues but I find Agent to be a far superior newsreader than any native Linux version I've found. It does not appear (or I haven't found a way) to enable it to choose my Linux browser when I click on an URL- I have to cut and paste.


What was not tested

Email functions not tested.

Additional Comments

Don't let the Bronze rating fool you. Aside from minor font issues I'm very happy.
