I normally run UO from either VirtualBox or CrossOver Games on my Mac, but I've been meaning to switch over to Wine Stable for quite some time, so...Install ProcessInstall XQuartzInstall Wine StableDownload the UO Installer (I'll be using Classic Client for this example)Launch the UO installer (double-click it)You'll be prompted to install wine-mono. Click "Install".You'll be prompted to install Gecko. Click "Install".The UO Installer will now launch, follow the prompts as you would in Windows. You may want to uncheck the Create Shortcut checkbox, as it'll create a useless LNK file on the desktop.Open a new Finder window and click Go > Go to Folder in the Menu BarCopy/Paste the following: ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Electronic Arts/Ultima Online ClassicDouble-click "UO.exe" to begin the patch process.Create a Shortcut on the DesktopSelect UO.exe in the previously opened Finder window.In the Menu Bar select File > Make AliasDrag the newly created Alias to your desktop from the Finder window.I'm doing this now, so if I run in to any issues I'll update this thread.
Thanks to @ MadMartyr for contributing the steps. @ Mariah I think this thread deserves a sticker. @ MadMartyr I wonder if you know how we can make custom icons for EC macros....
Small update: Although I tried Parallels for a while, the keyboard not being polled well combined with some inaccuracy on the mouse led me to try VMWare Fusion instead. It doesn't seem to have either bug, so I'd suggest it instead.

Which Mac version do you have? Lots of people in my professional circle swears by Parallels and are jealous that I can get it with a student discount.
