As of Wine 4, it's silver, maybe gold

With Wine 4.0 most things work. Templates are fine. The main interface is fine.

Calendar and contacts don't work because it appears they need other components of a Windows installation, so no surprise.

History does not seem to work. It may be due to a file path problem.

But everything else works fine.

Update after further testing: dictionary works fine if you install original msxml2.dll and override built-in. To-dos don't work properly and this causes problems with the pre-rolled projects. "Tour" doesn't work; probably needs Media Player. It seems like if I can figure out the right libraries it may all work. I'll post back if I solve it. For now, probably Silver.

How are you install msxml2?
With winetricks?

Could you please submit screenshot of already working things?
