What works

Excel 2010 generally works superb.  

What does not

The quickfilter in Excel did not work on OSX. I get a flickering screen.

See the problem here:  

A. Wine OSX > Flickering problem.
B. Wine Ubuntu > No flickering problem.

Videos which show the problem  (Mac OSX El Capitain - problem) (Ubuntu - no problem)

In my opinion, the problem resides in the way Wine handles the keyboard on OSX. Instead of directly relaying the keystrokes directly from the hardware, Wine seems to OSX to manage keyboard input. My rationale for saying this, is that I can change the flickering rate (see video A) by change the key repeat rate, in the OSX configuration screen.

What was not tested
Powerpoint, other applications.

Window Resizing Issues

Workarounds for bugs 23805 and 30587:

Solution 1: Run in an emulated virtual desktop. This is probably the easiest solution for most users.

Solution 2: Uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg. The downside is that Excel will no longer show up in the taskbar.

Solution 3: (KDE users only) In System Settings, Window Behavior, do the following:

  1. Select Window Rules
  2. Click "New..." to create a new Window Rules
  3. Enter the description
  4. Window Class: Regular Expression: value *\b(winword.exe|excel.exe|powerpnt.exe)\b.*
  5. Check "Match whole window class"
  6. Check on tab "Size & Position"
  7. Check "Full screen": value Force, No
  8. Check "Ignore Requested Geometry": value Force, Yes
  9. Click Okay
