Original & Gold editions
Playing, HW acceleration, sound, everything! Game runs flawlessly on 1.1.5
What does not
Game sometimes crashes if you change video settings, but not often, in-game/in other options everyting is OK
What was not tested
You need native quartz.dll for videos and remove quartz replacement entry in winecfg, if you got it there. Too I installed directx9 with winetricks, i don't know if it is needed, but propably not. Too you must set Windows version to Windows 98. I have nVidia 7600GS with 173xx drivers on Debian Lenny.

Thief is an old game that will have problems on modern hardware, Windows or Wine. Therefore you must install TFix to run the game.
TFix might prompt a warning on language settings for the GOG version: you can safely ignore it.
It may prompt an error message at the end of the process. Do not confirm or it will revert the install. Kill wine instead.
