Yep, I've been using it since 2000 to play half-life on Linux (wasn't
till late 2001 that I got it to work stably. Before
reached 1.0 I occasionally used it when I had to open MS doc using
Word97 and Excel97 - thankfully that is no longer necessary.

Before I discovered Mnemosyne (formally pymemaid) I ran supermemo 7 (or
something like that) on wine, as well as a couple of old Windows 3.1 and
95 games that didn't have emulators under Linux.

Before switching to Gentoo, setting up wine as always a bit of a
struggle, but I haven't had to so anything other than "emerge wine" to
get it work with the things I use - although it sometimes crashes at
random intervals for no discernible reason, but I think that's just wine
trying to emulate Windows BSOD :)
