Finale 2007 and the 2007a update both installed without trouble.
Interesting article http://www.habibbijan.com/articles/run-finale-2007-on-linux-with-wine/
Opening files, including large files (I opened an concert band score of mine without issue).Playing files with the softsynth. Human Playback even works. Scrolling playback works, too (NB: there are occasional audio distortions on my system. Your mileage may vary).Entering notes: both simple and speedy entry (from the computer keyboard) work fine.Entering dynamics and articulations.Viewing from both Page View and Scroll View. I had no trouble changing the viewing size of scores.Opening and saving files works. Save as Audio works just fine.Dragging the view with the right mouse button works.I tried a few Mass Edit and Page Layout options without trouble. Of course, I did not test every available action.

What was not tested
Printing, GPO/Smartmusic install,Product Activation,MIDI keyboard support (hardware-dependent)
