Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't QEMU a virtualization product?

Yes it is, along with Win4BSD and Win4Solaris, also Win4BSD is QEMU based so you can also put QEMU here, someone did not make the homework

Wine. I used to dislike Wine, but the latest versions surprised me a lot. I don't have need for any Windows software, except for games, and wine is quite impressive with them. If wine continue to improve at this pace, there is a chance that it will support more Windows XP games than Vista does and that may bring a lot of new users.

Yeah, wine has done some serious progress, so wine should be the best.

My vote is with Wine. I get excited every two weeks when the a new version comes out. This project is buzzing with activity Monday through Friday. I can say this because of how open the project is. Their's no hidden process, you can check out the mailing lists, GIT, Bugzilla, AppDB for yourself. No stagnation here. Just an incredible project.
