Pretty Much Everything work in the app with only wine without needing winetricks or something extra. The app delays in starting, a blank screen opens instead and then the app loads correctly, be patient. The basic functions work correctly, you can draw, animate, import objects, Everything feels just like in Windows but with a little bit of "lag". Even exporting movies to SWF work correctly and the movies play just fine.
What does not
It is not possible to use the Text tool. Other tools delay a little in start working on the canvas sometimes but they do work. The app seem to "overload" if you use a tool many times repeatedly, or try to use many tools too quickly, it generates an "memory load" effect and Vectorian Giotto Crashes. The installer and other Dialog Boxes are "out of phase", Like, Too Big, but they accomplish they work and besides the installer I only have seen one when Giotto Crashed showing the Bug Report Tool of the App.
What was not tested
I tested almost every common function you might use in the app and everything looks fine, but there are other specific areas I didn't touched, Like the Library import tool (didn't had the need to). I'm just assuming they work fine too.
Try not to force the app too much, it feels like if it were running on a "mediumly slow" machine even if you use it in a powerful machine. Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
