How's IQ Feed running on Wine? Any known problems, instability, etc?

We have many API customers who successfully use Wine, or a Wine-based solution, to launch iqconnect.exe in Linux or MacOS. I wouldn't say there are any "known" problems or issues, beyond the usual things that can crop up, like issues with permissions or libraries. In my experience, it is good practice to keep things as basic as possible, such as using default file locations.
I should also note that launching the Windows APP iqconnect.exe is the only API task that is Windows-specific. Everything else can be done using any OS or technology that supports a socket connection.
