Vbox Read the lifehacker article “Run Windows Apps Seamlessly Inside Linux” for those who absolutely have to use some Windows only apps! 😉

Kevin Purdy states: “You love working inside your Linux desktop, but at the most inconvenient times you’ve got to reboot into Windows—whether to open a tricky Office file, try out a Windows application, or even just play a quick game. However, with some free tools and a Windows installation disk, you can have Windows apps running right on your Linux desktop and sharing the same desktop files. It’s relatively painless, it takes only a little bit longer than a Windows XP install, and it works just like virtualizing Windows on a Mac with Parallels Coherence—except it’s free. Here’s how to set up Windows inside VirtualBox, and then get Windows apps running seamlessly inside your desktop.”

Read on, follow the instructions, and you will be in business (for FREE!!!). I know, you will have to purchase a copy of Windows!
