I decided to try Audacity 1.2.3 with Wine 20040813 on my linux box,
partly because I'm thinking of installing it on a friend's windows
laptop for her.
To my suprise, it works ok-ish, though it was a little sluggish. I
managed to record a multitrack song, and save it as a mono wav file.
Only problem is the audio track graphics (you know, the little line that
moves across the track when you're recording, and produces the wav
shapes that correspond with the volume of what you're playing) doesn't
seem to work too good. Didn't try any of the effects.
Just a question: why not develop Audacity using winelib? Kill two birds
with one stone.

I believe that the Windows version of Audacity would work better on an
actual Windows system than it would under WINE, due to the overhead
involved in running programs through WINE. When I used Windows,
Audacity worked pretty well, although the Linux version (without using
WINE) seems to run slightly more smoothly than the Windows version does
