What does not
The multimedia quick tour appeared to work, but it used only one monitor and was truncated: my dual-monitor setup may be confusing it.
There's a few additional rendering glitches, but nothing serious.
What was not tested
Modem, network, and USB syncing.
Palm Email Wiz.
Some functionality of Palm Desktop.
The Expense application: when it fires up Excel 2007, I get the error message "opening the VBA project in this file requires a component that is not currently installed. This file will be opened without the VBA project. For more information, search Microsoft Office Online for 'VBA converters.'" followed by "This workbook has lost its VBA project, ActiveX controls and any other programmability-related features". This does not appear to be a Wine issue but a backward-compatibility problem with Excel 2007 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926430), and for some reason MS don't make the VBA converters freely downloadable. It's possible that this will work in older versions of Office, but my OEM licence doesn't give me downgrade rights to test this out.
Some of the testing (e.g. the full restore) was done on slightly older versions of Wine, probably 0.9.40 or thereabouts.
