Linux emulation is decent. Its a great way to run any linux 
software(except java). Though WineX worked.. it didn't work to my

There needs to be a "how windows doesnt cut it" site like the anti-OSS 
microsoft site. They are sort of funny, talking how running Microsoft 
software is cheaper (*chuckles*)
Curious if there is already a site supported by OSS?
