I tested eMule with a standard use: the installation was ok, the set-up wizard was identical to the Window's version. It can connect with Servers and with Kadmelia without any problem (you should wait a minute before kad connection). Very important note: if you want to set the nodes for Kadmelia, you have to download a nodes.dat from here: http://www.nodes-dat.com/ Then you must go into this directory: C:\Programmi\eMule\config and put here the dowloaded nodes.dat. The traditional way to upload Kadmelia nodes (by clicking "add to emule") doesn't work. The test of TCP and UDP ports is ok, the little arrows are green. The search is very very fast (more that in Windows7!). I tried to download a common file (Open Office), and it was downloaded without any problem. I tried also to download a movie, and it's all ok.
What does not
I tried to associate an Ubuntu's player to play the preview, but I wasn't able to do it because eMule admits only executable files .exe. If I'd have installed a player with Wine (VLC, for example), probably it would work.
What was not tested
I didn't test the IRC.
Emule v0.50a works very well, after all. But if you want to see the previews of movies and song, you should install also a player with Wine, because Emule needs to upload a .exe file to play the previews.
