I've just installed the latest Windows download version on my linux box under Wine [I selected Wine version wine-2.0-rc6 (Staging)].

Up to present, I have managed to open my projects created using the last Linux free beta. All seems to function smoothly and I have not yet found something which doesn't work. But bear in mind that software is a complex product and not all functions are used all the time so I cannot exclude the possibility that further use will reveal a glitch or two.

Other threads mention problems under wine with the clipboard. This seems to have been fixed in the latest wine version.
