Selected Test Results

What works

The splash screen works and stays hanging there with the CPU working at 100% for more than ten minutes if you don't hit a few times CTRL+c on the console, I have to press 6 times for it to disappear and for newsleecher to appear. Newsleecher in wine consumes a lot of CPU, on my case it is more than 75% when leeching files.

What does not

The serial key can not be inserted from within newsleecher but instead using regedit. The annoying thing here is that you need a windows installation to grab the strings form it to be entered in wine's windows registry.

Workarounds
