Everything except for a minor graphical issue.
What does not
Some minor graphical issues with planets and bridge colourings (they don't fade into each other well, looks a little patchy). Other than that nothing.
What was not tested
Full playthrough of Campaign. Multiplayer. Running game without a CD crack (lost my disk a long time ago)
Patching requires a minor workaround. Once the game is installed you must change permissions for all files in the Activision/Bridge Commander folder to "read and write" or patching will fail. (defaults to read only)

When reporting a test result please add your video card and driver version, thank you.
Because of driver problems, Intel video cards which are commonly used in Laptops will be too slow for this game.
Nvidia cards with the closed source driver are working fine.
If you have problems with Sound try the set Audio Quality to High: For this open options.cfg in a Text editor and change
ProviderReserveList=LowQualitySoftware to ProviderReserveList=HighQualitySoftware
Kobayashi Maru users can change this under Game Options.
Installing Bridge Commander
Bridge Commander installs without problems from original disc.
Updating to version 1.1
Bridge Commander installs without problems running the executable patch through wine.
1. You may need a fixed exe
2. Fastest way to test if game is working is through Quickbattle. Load the game, configure it and test 3d with the Quickbattle Button.
3. If you run this game from a vfat drive, I highly recommend to use the mount option shortname=winnt. Else BCs internal Python interpreter can run into a lot trouble with case sensitivity of files.Black screen on start may be caused by this.
