What works

Everything works as expected (refer to what I have not tested)

NOTES: 

- I added `export WINEARCH=win32` to .bashrc (before installing Wine) to as I have read that this provides better compatibility over running 32bit mode of 64bit OS.

- It didn't work on any version of Wine other than staging version (3.13) on Ubuntu 16.04

What does not

Clipboard didn't work out of the box.  Anytime something was copied to clipboard, Workspaces client would crash. 

Workarounds

Installing VB Runtime 2013 with `winetricks vcrun2013` fixed the issue

What was not tested

Did not test printing (I just don't have a printer)... removed plug-in as per instructions from other users by:

removing the vchan_plugins/pcoip_vchan_remoteprintclient.dll from the Amazon workspaces client install directory.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

Wine fills the gap left by Amazon not providing a native Linux Workspace client.  Kudos the Wine developers.  Well done and Thank you :)

Remove the following file to stop crashes on progarm start: ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Amazon Web Services, Inc/Amazon WorkSpaces/vchan_plugins/pcoip_vchan_remoteprintclient.dll

In some cases you may need to install install VB Runtime 2013 this can be done with winetricks `winetricks vcrun2013`
