Most of things, including installation.
The installer opens and completes without errors, the application itself launches nearly as fast as on Windows, again with no errors.
What does not
The installer fails creating the shortcuts to launch the application (so you have to create them on your own).
Sometimes sliding bars like for selecting a numeric value (ex: width of a rectangle, thickness of a border) don't disappear until you close the actual file.
A bigger bug is that once you have applied a live filter onto an object, you cannot delete it (exception: CTRL+Z) or edit it anymore (the listbox which should show the active live filters isn't rendered correctly)
What was not tested
Many more complicated actions.
Installed on a fresh and clean Wine / Kubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft). No tweaks necessary. No missing DLLs.

env WINEPREFIX="/home/~user~/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Fireworks.exe"

3 - Where it says "|> Use a custom command", click that
4 - A box will appear, in that paste the custom launcher information and press open. Now fireworks will open with that file. Clsoe fireworks. Now when you double lick to open a png it will open with fireowrks.
