I'm really surprised people are over-engineering this as much as they have 
been... you really don't need a full blown VM for 90% of the software out 
there for Windows.  For that 90%, Wine more than handles it.  For the other 
10%, it's probably too much trouble to be worth maintaining compatability 
given the dying nature of that legacy platform...
