Installation (with one hitch, see below).
Starting a new game.
What does not
The graphics are a little wonky here and there and the game experiences a little slow-down, but nothing really serious in either case (I probably won't notice it after 15 minutes of game play, or so, anyway)
What was not tested
Extended game play.
Just a couple of quick notes on my experience: 1) While installing Bloodmoon I got a request to insert 'disk 0' that contains a file 'data3.cab'. The problem is that there IS no data3.cab on any of the CD's (morrowind, tribunal, bloodmoon). Cancelling the installation and trying again (just bloodmoon) and it worked the second time. 2) I'm using a no-cd hack cause I'm lazy and I had a problem with it where it wanted the movie files but couldn't find them. Copying the videos from the first disc (morrowind) to the videos file in the installation fixed the problem (and videos play perfectly!)

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 !
