I'm voting qemu because while it's still not as good as VMWare, it's made far more progress this year than any other similar software.

Wine has improved enough for daily use

Wine has improved so much in the last year that I can run most programs on it that I used to use the other, closed options for. In reality, though, I don't use it at all except to check my work in MS Wordview before my file goes out the door or in IE before I put up a new template on my website.

I didn't find any of the emulators good enough (I tried cedega + wine, slower and a lot buggier than on win) so I dual-boot. Of those I still voted QEMU, as I don't run windows in it but I test new distros and stuff from time to time.

Wine. It works very well with the one Windows app I couldn't live without: PokerStars

When I absolutely must run windows; I'm at work and don't have a choice on what OS to run on my PC. When I want to use windows because I want to run application XYZ (because I'm more familiar with how to do ABC via XYZ); then I reboot into Windows. Emulators just don't cut it for me.

Crossover. But it wouldn't work without wine.
Rebooting is even better.

VMWare works absolutely brilliantly, when you must do things like "remote login" to XP systems. I run it on my laptop so I can run Linux and do dev work while I log into my work machine at my day-job and do other dev work

WINE works reasonably well for simpler applications, I've been using it for years and it has improved, but I'm always running up against its rough edges
