Windows and Linux: in perfect harmony

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET: "We called on five Windows-on-Linux solutions--VMware GSX Server, VMware Workstation, Win4Lin, Wine, and
WinToNet--to strut their stuff for us. With an emulator (or, in the case of Wine, a Windows compatibility layer), you can
maintain the Linux foundation while being able to call up Windows applications as needed. And WinToNet takes a
different tack; it's a Windows NT/2000-based product that can serve up Windows applications to any client with a
browser--including Linux. Although each of these packages has its own set of quirks, none is terribly difficult to use,
and all tend to work to varying degrees, depending on what you're looking for."
