Additional Comments

Working slow. Slower than in windows. Anyway still works fine. But there is slow reaction when pressing keys in piano roll. Also to work with full program window, turn off windows manager controlling wine programs. And more, if you don't have sound, choose Alsa in winecfg, then choose in Reason settings working sound devise, it will be there. (of it's not enought in your system sound settings turn everywhere Alsa too. Problem with dvd require solved - just mount .iso on /media/cdrom0 (add it to winecfg by auto detec cd\dvd devices). It will accept this cd. I think all this settings will be ok also in Ubuntu 10.04. And one more "bug". When Reason does not open and says something like "not supported format". It terminal open it like: "wine '/reasondirectory/reason.exe' '/reason_or_other_directory/song.rps'" It's important to use ' and song to open. Then Reason will open and you'll have just to create new project or open existing one.
