Wine. partly because of it's 'price'. Though I no longer see any point in wanting to corrupt my Linux installation with Windows.

Crossover office isn't perfect but it's doing the job so far. So I vote for it.

I vote for wine, because it's opensource, and the developers spend a lot of time on it, you can see a new version in almost every 2 weeks. It's just getting better and better

Emulators versus API Call translators

I voted for Qemu. I use it often on my Mac but I'm sure I could still learn more about it. I think next year emulators like Qemu should be have their own category. The very fact that WINE is an acronym for WINE is not an emulator makes me think WINE should have its own category since it really translates Windows API Calls into Linux native system calls. I can't wait for Qemu to mature some more so Darwine will become a workable solution for running all of my Windows apps on my PowerPC Macs running 10.4.8. I'm also curious to know why Bochs wasn't included in the poll too.

I know this is a little late, but VirtualBox definitely needs to be added!

Haven't tested it myself yet, but apparently performance-wise it's on par with VMware, which afaik is the fastest VM out there. The good news is that it's been GPL'd only five days ago, which means it's here to stay

There's plenty of 5-10 minute tutorials out there on how to get it started, just search on Google.

vmware is really good. for people with fast machines and good enough ram, takes the pain out of dual-booting.

wine, it's just easy to use. I may when I'm feeling really ambitious look at VMware.

I voted for VMWare, although to be fair it is the only one I've ever tried. Seeing the list of options, I may have to experiment a bit.
