I thought about Win4Lin back when I was converting our office to
staroffice 5.2 and linux (the advantage of being the CEO, CFO and CTO :)
Instead I networked an extra PC and rolled my chair back and forth for a
few months. Nowadays I generally run windows once a month, and for less
than 30 minutes, so Win4Lin would be overkill.
