What works

The program gets to the opening screen, as long as there is a version of  JRE 7 installed on the Wine drive. Otherwise it will not work at all. On my box anyway, when Sun's java installer attempted to download the Windows version, it was unable to do so. I ended up downloading the offline version of JRE 7 and installing it with Wine.

What does not

I get "connection timeout" when I click on the "Connect with Facebook" button on the opening screen.


What was not tested

Chat functions could not be tested because of the inability to connect.

Additional Comments

The rating has the potential to go to silver or gold if I can solve the network connection issues. It would also be great if the developer would release a version that doesn't depend on Windows DLL's so that it can run natively under Linux. The source is available at
