What works

Installation, creating, printing, saving, and opening documents.

It's extremely fast; it starts up even faster than native linux openoffice.org 2.0!

What does not

During installation, an error is given off about not being able to access the desktop. Just click ignore, and it'll continue normally.

Running winword.exe without changing into the office directory gives off an error, and makes everything freeze.
