Yes, you can with wine since version 0.9.

Harmony protected clients since version 1.4 if I remember correctly. You don't need extra configuration but working drivers for that (mainly, Intel open drivers and closed source blobs for nvidia and Ati).

There are a few tricks to make the game work better, in the registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Wine > Direct3D):
- OffscreenRenderingMode -> backbuffer
- RenderTargetLockMode -> disabled

Additionally, there's a patch involving CSMT that basically increases performance by delegating openGL calls to other thread.

As a note, newer clients work better under wine than older clients.
