What works

With wine as of April 24, 2006, it installs and shows a presentation mostly correctly.

What does not

It's slow, there are tons of uniscribe warnings, and a strange little blob or two

are drawn near the middle of the screen. Presumably stuff is getting squished

into the blob because of a bug in wine.


What was not tested

Printing.  Actually, anything more than just scrolling through the pages of one presentation.
