Just about everything. Very smooth graphics, no sound issues.
I'm running the game in
Windowed mode on a dual screen desktop (2048x768) using Debian Linux
and Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 dual head video card. The game res is set at 1024x768.
I use the Windows 2000 mode.
NO: Allow DirectX app to stop the mouse...
YES: Allow the window manager to decorate the windows
YES: Allow the window manager to control the windows
YES: Emulate a Virtual Desktop at 1024x768. (I have to resize the window when I start Morrowind - Wine 0.9.46 keeps the window settings)
(Plus the usual default settings for winecfg)
I've tested the game in both fullscreen and window mode on the Virtual Desktop.
What does not
Configuring Control keys under Options still freezes the game.
The water texture looks terrible (or non-existant) and there are lines between the water tiles.
The inventory player icon is upside down.
The local map is still querky -- seems to work occasionally.
(I've submitted a screenshot showing some of these quirks)
What was not tested
- Construction Set
- Game mods I use (like Constance Companion, etc.)
- Bloodmoon and Tribunal Expansions
- Actual fullscreen mode (no virtual desktop).
I've yet to find a good reason to upgrade from Wine 0.9.46 to the later releases. 0.9.46 is still pretty stable for most of my games despite the quirks.

Music has to be erased from Data Files/Music prior running the game (required only for Wine < 0.9.36).
When game ask about mp3 files, press Esc.
In winecfg set vertex shader mode to hardware. If you've got Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (Video card), make sure you deselect "Vertex shader support" in winecfg, otherwise you won't be able to exit the ship in the beginning of the game.
In winecfg set winver=win98 for best application behavior.
Make following changes in Morrowind.ini file:
;; Reduce CPU load
;; Reduce crashes
;; Improve loading times
;; RAM specific options (1/4 of total RAM for interior, 3/4 for exterior)
;; Examples for 1GB RAM machine
Interior Cell Buffer=256
Exterior Cell Buffer=768
You can get much better water rendering and rid of red inventory person artifacts using 3D acceleration:
