Tracktimer+Ubuntu+Wine=true!

Some of my racing friends are not exactly overwhelmed by Microsoft operating systems so every now and then I get the question about when Tracktimer will be available for Linux.
"It will never happen" is my usual answer.
But it appears that Tracktimer actually works in Linux with the help of Wine, I got this e-mail yesterday:

Greetings from Malaysia Torkel!

Just writing to let you know that your software seems to work flawlessly in linux (Ubuntu) using the latest version of "WINE".. I've been able to do timing, saving, etc... using the demo version, with ZERO problems.

To be more specific he runs Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)... and WINE
version 0.9.54.

Thanks for the research Mikko!
