At this point, many simple apps should probably work OK. The main
problems areas that need work are exception handling (mainly because
of kernel bugs) and the debugger support that essentially doesn't work
at all. You'll also need to disable optimizations when building
because of the gcc stack-realign bug (we need to come up with a
configure check for it), and you most likely have to use an X
server because the Apple one has some serious bugs in rootless mode.

So it's not quite ready for prime time yet. We are hoping to have
binary packages on WineHQ in the near future, that should make it
somewhat easier to get things going.
