Programme runs. With installing mfc42 using winetricks the graphs will work. I can load a trade. Hot keys can be configured. Most things work fine.
In ubuntu the multiple desktops are excellent and allow you up to 12 screens x 2 with dual monitors. Far more useful and faster navigation than windows.
What does not
The clock does not work. This is not that important, but good if you are trading close to closing.
What was not tested
Trade execution not tested. I will update this once I have completed the full test. But in case I forget or dont have time, getting the programme installed and main components working was a big task done.
Speed has not been tested in full. I will do this over the next few weeks. It should be better than windows due to the lack of background services running.
