Frame rates were exceptional even with view distance way up
Morrowind FPS Optimizer did a great job with widescreen resolutions and allowing farther view distance.
Libraries: d3dx9, corefonts, tahmoa
No extra configuration necessary
Vanilla ran perfectly with Bloodmoon patch
I was able to install Morrowind Rebirth and some texture mods.
Some mods like better bodies, facepacks and meshes did not work

About windows getting minimized, the workaround is pretty simple : the
MenuStates of the .ini file is reset everytime you launch the game,
which causes it to define minimized windows. What you need to do is
chmod it to read-only (chmod 444 does the trick) after having changed
the MenuStates parameters to suitable window sizes.
I got it to work with around 50 mods, the thing is the .ini file
needs to update the modlist, so you first need to run Morrowind with a
writable .ini file (chmod 644 works like a charm), then you can kill the
process immediately afterwards (wineserver -k after Ctrl+Alt+F1 for
instance), chmod the .ini to 444 after checking the MenuStates section
is still well and about, and launch the game !
