What works

I will go by the feature list:

  • Searching
  • Using the navigation tree (table of contents) 
  • Sound (listening to examples)
  •  Lookup of any word of the text in the CALD2 dictionary (presumably the Cambridge Advanced Learner's dictionary); which apparently comes included with the CGE (it works even when the computer is offline)
  • Setting, deleting, and retrieving favourites
  • taking notes on entries 
  • Printing entries

What does not

Two things, namely using the table of contents tree and entering notes do not always seem to work, but I could not pinpoint why. (First, they did not work, then, they did. I do not really have the time to reproduce this bug.) On further use, it seems that some controls do not respond before you have clicked into an entry.

Second, there are not any buttons to exit the application, and I could not find a key combination anywhere. Thus, you have to close it using the window manager (which amounts more to killing it, I presume). This makes you wonder if your notes and favourites are actually saved, but this does seem to be the case.

(It COULD very well be, however, that the key combination to close it is simply Alt+F4. But that happens to be the combination my window manager uses...) 


What was not tested

I think I tested pretty much everything, although not very exhaustively.

Additional Comments

Judging by the functionality that is available, the rating should be platinum; it is just because of the minor glitches (which do not hinder normal use) that I refrained from that. In other words, it seems to be just as useful as under native Windows.
