I've used Wine and VM but prefer Win4Lin. I may be a bit biased as I have
been a beta tester for them from the start but think it is a good product=
=2E I
find WINE a valiant effort but still basically unusable. VM is great but
geared toward the corporate market. Win4Lin runs nearly every Win app kno=
including games and is $80.=0D

They do not have a free evaluation download but do offer a no-questions

It can be purchased and downloaded online and is also available in horror

I'd dload and do it online rather than deal with those Comp folk.=0D
Happy Holidays!=0D
