Retail version that is distributed via Steam.
Everything works, although the graphics are a tad rough and load / save screens run for longer.
Steam required re-registering as a new computer, which is a pig if you are going to switch between using it under wine and using it under windows, but it works.
Console command cheats seem to work as well!!!
What does not
Old saves. I had old saves under windows, but it couldn't see them. It will create new saves though.
What was not tested
Install not tested. I ran it off a windows partition.
Gameplay not tested until the end.
I wanted to put this review on since the only other "ubuntu" based test marked it as garbage, and yet I got it working fine.

Things needed to be installed for F:NV to run;
winetricks quartz* - Maybe
*With 1.3.25 onwards, some dll overrides could cause issues (I'm looking squarely at quartz) - This could just have been an issue with me because I have a wine-steam prefix with as many games that work as possible in there, had to move New Vegas to its own prefix after these issues.
The winetricks version of quartz is from directx9, a user reported that he needed the win7 version for it to work. YMMV
This will be updated if anything else comes up as a requirement.
