[tlug] Wine...

I just did a Google search for "Does wine actually work?", which led to 
27,800,000 responses - the leading ones all about a certain alcoholic 
beverage.  I don't care if nobody answers this, but I'm tossing this 
onto the list out of curiosity - is anyone actually having success using 
Wine?  I installed it and then went through the motions of installing 
some applications written for brand-W, including the Random House 
dictionary, ACDSee and (not needed, but just to test Wine) a simple text 
editor.  The result?  All installed, and none work.  Both ACDSee and 
Random House act as though they are going to open, but then just crash 
and vaporize.  I'm using Wine version 0.9.9.  It's not yet version 1.0 
for good reason I'd say!  Again, it's not important, so if you're busy, 
then never mind, but if you have any information you don't mind tossing 
into the wires, I'd be interested in reading it.
