On Gentoo, using wine 0.9.28, Flash installs directly without the need to do

I think it's been working since 0.9.24 actually, but I'm not sure about that.
Anyway, under wine, the IDE works alright but I have encountered several
issues: some flas just won't open for some reason and rendering of the Flash
content in the IDE can be painfully slow (sometimes doesn't even refresh
properly), especially if lots of text is involved. At times, typing text
content into a static text field has so much latency that some letters are
skipped. That's a quite irritating. Other than that, it certainly does work
well enough for me to get real work done.
