Panoramafactory 3.x worked great in Wine, specifically version 20040615. There were minor quirks in how the app responded to typical user interaction, but nothing that would prevent you from successfully using the program. I managed to stitch some high resolution flatbed scans to generate a 600MB finished product. It used ALL 1.5 gb of memory.
Version 4.0 had some odd behavior on wine 20040615, so I upgraded to 0.9.7. There are new and different quirks, and I'm just learning how to compensate.
I'm running Slackware 10.1, with a recompiled kernel for big memory and Athlon support. I've been able to stitch some amazing panoramics with Panorama Factory.

Panoramafactory 4.2 works well in Slackware 10.2, 2.4.32 kernel, using wine 0.9.7. Get and use winetools to set things up. It makes things so much easier. PF seems to run cleanly with all dialog boxes and typical expected behavior after I launch it the second time. On the first pass, the progress boxes for stitching information do not appear. Subsequent uses do not have any issues. It must be something with how Wine responds to an app that is run for the first time.

Using wine-0.9.44 which ships with Slackware 12.0, Panorama Factory 5.0 Legacy works well. There are two pulldown menus in the bars of icons at the top, one for "rotate" and another for "zoom", and in my configuration these do not display properly.
The zoom pull down covers the buttons for zoom-in and zoom-out, but you can click them by using the exposed edge.
The rotate pull down covers over the "show imported images" and "save image as", but can also be identified and used by clicking on the exposed edge.
I would consider these to be minor issues, and may be unique to my particular system.
I recently purchased a Panosaurus head which greatly improves the softwares ability to cleanly stitch photos, and I expect it to enhance the multi-row stitching methods described here as well.
Well done on version 5!
