What works

I've used Taxact/Wine for several years.  So far this year is working very well.  Both the Q&A and direct form entry works.  I used the e-file feature successfully last year. 

Taxact typically releases updates throughout the early part of tax season.  You can update directly in the program without reinstalling.

What does not

When scrolling a form, the display can become garbled.  Page down, rather than using the scroll wheel.

Application may hang on startup.  I had to switch to console (ctrl-alt-F1), find the pid, and kill it.  Able to enter by quickly (within a couple of seconds) clicking through the offer to upgrade to Deluxe, and possibly the offer to download and install the update.
