The important stuff - DDB files, binder, new projects, schematics, PCBs, schematic->PCB sync, PCB DRC, PCB printer, CAM outputs.
To get this to work, try the following guide (I assume you have winetricks):
What does not
Maximized design windows behave oddly with binder (but OK with schematic and PCB it seems). PCB3D does not generate an useful image and sometimes dies outright with GLXBadContext. Sometimes throws an exception on finish.
PCB and schematic rendering is slightly slower than on Windows.
What was not tested
Stuff not listed above.
I'm not sure if silver or gold is the right rating. There are some flaws, but I think that this is such a complex app that if a few relatively useless parts fail (like PCB3D) and the rest works perfectly it averages out to gold :)
