Everything works with the vanilla Wine:
- Installing the application on CD,
- Starting and stopping the application,
- Advanced search, SUPERwrite, exercises, study pages, personal notes and personal lists,
- Setting the options for font sizes, icons and audio output,
- Clicking on the UK or US icons to make the program say the word out loud,
- Recording your own pronunciation.
What does not
QUICKfind: it works in the sense that it docks properly in the taskbar, can be setup, can switch back and forth to the dictionary's reduced and full featured window, can be started and stopped independently, and nothing crashes, but it doesn't actually do anything when pointing at a word in native Firefox and pressing CTRL. It's supposed to be more tightly integrated with IE and Word, but I haven't tried.
It probably uses some Windows-only trickery to capture the CTRL key, and to determine that the mouse is hovering over a word that it can grab, so it's probably not very likely to happen in X.
