So, will it work?

I am member of a university team working on our diplomma now. Our
subject is a desktop app that would help writers in writing books -
novels mostly. One of our major goals is to make it work both on
Windows and Linux. We are writing it in Java and we want something
else for UI than ugly and unfriendly Swing. JavaFX 2 looks very
promising (and would be great thing to learn and put in our resumes).
But the question is - will it work? Is it reliable enough? Can it work
on Linux despite no official release yet? End of 2012 is way too late
for us, we need something working within a month. But what we need are
just some UI controls - to make main interface, that is all menus,
navigation, etc [similar to what Word has]. Is it possible with
current OpenJFX release? If yes, is there any maven archetype to start
working on the project? Or some sample app (just showing "it works!"
when opened) to expand?
