Additional Comments

I'd give it a gold-silver alloy if I could, because it runs in a perfectly usable state, with some slowness in switching tools. I tried with a fresh Ubuntu install, so I might not have graphics acceleration running, yet, and that might help. I don't know why I can't select Wine 1.0 in the release menu. It is the current stable version of Wine. I had to select 1.1.1 without the option.
