What does not
Pyjamas-Desktop presently does not work with Wine's built-in GECKO Engine, nor do all pyjamas applications work under iexplore when using Gecko.
The reason why Pyjamas-Desktop presently does not work under Wine's Gecko Engine is because there is an OLE Window Interface missing from the Wine implementation of MSHTML.
What was not tested
Many of the examples (there are over 75)
To get Pyjamas-Desktop to work, python 2.6 as well as python-comtypes and then either of IE6, IE7 or IE8 are required. This is a pretty stunning achievement that MSMHTML.DLL's COM interface is even accessible via python running under Wine. To use IE8, instructions had to be followed that include installing IE6 first, followed by upgrading to IE8.
