Not much, installation fails
What does not
Installation. Most components appear to install correctly, but when I run the game it keeps trying to install the visual C++ 2008 redistributable. The installation window then closes, and the game does not start. No visible errors
What was not tested
Playing the game.
Steam install stuck at "Must install steam service for this version of windows". Switching to wine to XP mode got around this, and allowed most of the components to install normally.

The borderlands lancher is not working with wine. But to run the game, it is this application that steam starts first. To work around the problem, do the following:
Create a file named steam_appid.txt with the contents "49520" (without quotes).
Put this files into the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder
Then, every time you runs the game, first runs steam, and only when steam is running, start the game by running Borderlands2.exe (in the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder)
