Everything I'm able to test works flawlessly! Installation, product registration, and every aspect of creating schedules has been completely transparent.
EasyWorship is usually used in 2 environments simultaneously by a church or other organization: one copy runs on the presentation computer for in-service playback (with a projector as a second monitor), and one or more copies can run on machines that people will use to build the presentations (called "schedules" by EasyWorship). All I've tested is the latter; I have not tried using EasyWorship under Wine for dual-monitor playback of the presentations in a live environment. But since I create the schedules and use Linux at home, I can simply run EasyWorship under Wine to create my presentations, and not have to dual-boot or run an annoying VM!
The full-screen preview does work, though, so you can test your schedules on-screen just as if you were playing them back on the projector. :-)
I've done everything from create new songs, maintain the song database, add graphic backgrounds, change default formatting... I've pretty much done everything you can do on the "preparation" side of the program and it has worked not only flawlessly, but just as fast as if I were running it under Windows, crossfades and other transitions included. And all the files I create play back flawlessly on the Windows computer used for playback.
What does not
Nothing so far!
What was not tested
Playback of presentations in a dual-monitor (projector) setup was not tested.
I would give this program a Platinum rating, but I simply am not able to test presentation playback without the required dual-monitor setup. For the "creation" side of its functionality, I give it a Platinum. The rest at this point is unknown.
