Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I was absolutely thrilled to get Quickbooks working with the latest version of Wine. Have waited years for this. Still can't get usb scanner or twain drivers working though, and I want my Textbridge OCR software to work. After that I'm off MS XP for good!
There are many emulators - Svista, Qemu (free), Bochs (slower, because of CPU emulation, but this is good sometimes, because everything is emulated) and even Virtual Server/Virtual PC (former Connectix Virtual PC - Windows and Mac versions). Under Linux - you know, there are many DOS emulators. Dosbox can run Windows 3.1.
If you absolutely need to run Windows applications - crossover, cedega are very good choices, especially if you want to play Windows game without Linux port.
I can't imagine another reason...
