How about qemu? It's not a windows emulator, but more like vmware, and I found it very reliable albeit slower than the original, but free.

Cedega. Worth the (small) fee without a doubt.

I got the free Anarchy Online account, and it plays flawlessly now. <-- Amazed

It's just a "when i can't run it natively" solution these Products are sure great. wine based apps seem to work a lot better then they did 2 years ago.

Crossover Office gets the vote because it has something like the "system settings --> software" on windows so it is really easy to set up your windows Programs. cedega has something like that too with point2play but afaik it installs a new wine for every game that is installed and thats riddickulous
