PlayOnLinux is pretty neat in some reguards but to be frank, I've used it a few times, then switched back to normal virgin wine with winetricks and haven't had any problems with it (office 2003, skyrim, terraria, steam, half life, deus ex, deus ex 3, unreal tournament, fallout 1, fallout 2, etc.).
RE: Skyrim, it works mostly fine in wine for me, didn't install it using wine though, had it installed from XP and just ran skyrimlaucher using wine, clicked 'install' then a few seconds later the screen refreshed to show 'play' instead of 'install' and it works fine! There is the water bug though but apparently that's common on windows too whereby if you go underwater all you see if a blue/green screen until you emerge from the water.
