What works

The basic program seems to work as is, but lots of little bits on the display - fonts in the icons, buttons and so on rather than the main display itself - are flaky. You can select different fonts, switch into hebrew and type - provided you have a valid keyboard selected, then the correct hebrew characters are displayed including the nikkud (pointing) correctly positioned under the consonants. Old files will load; the Hebrew fonts are correct, but due to Times Roman and Arial not being present on a Linux box, the english text is completely unreadable.

What does not

The InstallShield display produced errors on as does starting the program. Simplt leaving it running for a period without typing anything then generates further output.

The icons that should be inserted for TAB characters in the ruler just appear as boxes; the icons that should appear on the standard 'Hebrew' keyboard appear as boxes, as do the text telling you which keyboard to select. When clicking the drop-down box to select a font, many are just displayed (to the side) as a series of boxes, although many do show up correctly in their ("ABCD...") display; hitting escape then causes the drop-down box to disappear, but leaves a big grey blob in the top right-hand corner of the document display area.

Additional Comments

Sort of half-way between Bronze and Garbage; it *does* run, but particularly with existing documents is close to being unusable. Also, without a good working knowledge of the program on a Windows platform, you wouldn't be able to find your way around the broken icons to switch keyboards and use it.
