Installation, launching, character creation, conversation, speech, sound/graphics effects, music. Using the ALSA driver for Wine 1.1.5, along with the latest drivers for a GeForce 8600, music and speech looked fine and for the most part the graphics were great.
What does not
Configuring controls - The game locks up, or at least loses the ability to accept input, if you attempt to change any of the default keyboard/mouse controls. Could not find a workaround. Some graphics glitches occasionally, mostly seen on doors.
What was not tested
Main plot, 3rd party addons.
I wasn't able to replicate the music errors others were having. I would suggest using the ALSA driver and ensuring your sound card is supported by ALSA. The game looked gorgeous and played very smoothly. The minor graphics glitches were for the most part ignorable. The only major issue was the inability to manipulate the controls.

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 !
