Nothing huge and important really. They seem to be testing their releases with 
wine too, some blizzard dev said something like that on the wow forums when 
asked about a bug in their beta releases.

Every now and then I stumble accross some things where I'd ask someone from 
Blizzard, but in all those cases I could find a solution myself, and most 
likely quicker than waiting for someone responding, making sure we talk about 
the same problem and then debugging the things.

One thing that would be valueable to us would be to know how the Warden(the 
anti-cheat system) works, but I don't think Blizzard would tell us. Having 
someone taking us seriously for sure would be a good thing should we run into 
a huge problem like a mass ban like Transgaming had, or an update breaking 
wow in Wine/Crossover completely.
