-Graphics are rendered flawlessly.
-Gameplay is perfect.
-Performance is close to that of windows.
What does not
-Copy protection (CD crack required)
-When the game first ran it displayed a message about being unable to run the MP3 sound, and then quits. Deleting the "Music" Folder in the morrowind directory solves this, but as a result the music doesn't play.
-The character image in the inventory screen doesn't display.
-Sound was choppy when using OSS and Sound acceleration. Set sound to ALSA and Hardware Acceleration to "Emulated"
What was not tested
-The construction set
-Anything beyond Seyada Neen(The starting area)
-I used the Loki installer off http://www.liflg.org . It installed the game, construction set and expansion packs, plus the patch all in one go. -My winecfg settings are: Windows version: win 2000 Manager control: Yes Pixel Shaders: Yes Vertex Shaders: Hardware Sound Driver: ALSA (sound) Hardware Acceleration: Emulated Driver Emulation: Yes Default bits per sample: 16

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 !
