Sure I could run uTorrent on Wine, but what would be the point? Other than to prove it can be done. And I could run iTunes on Wine as well, if I wanted. However the China Telecom 3G dialler app doesn't. But I'm certainly not going to fake a RealTek or Intel system tray icon.

It's just regular Windows 8, not Pro, and it's definitely not RT. Bought and activated it on-line via MS United Kingdom, as Win 8 is not available without buying a new PC in China. The Pro version of Win 8 is more about features suitable for enterprise users, like Hyper-V and Group Policies.
