It does work fine on mine, but I didn't installed wine using the default installation. I customized a lot of settings on wine.

Anyway, I am successful on using the default wine install to use winbox by setting the IP address of the computer on the same subnet of the mikrotik router. Then try connecting to IP address or MAC and you'll be connected.

Yes, 13.10

I have one ASUS EEEPC 1000H, the font on terminal inside winbox are clearly readable.

In windows, if your computer has IP 192.168.1.2 and the port you are connected on mikrotik has IP address 192.168.88.1, you won't be able to connect using MAC.

Try settings your computer IP to 192.168.88.2 and you'll be able to connect. I know it defeats the purpose on connecting via MAC but that's how it worked on mine.
