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.

Distribution: Fedora 10[Cambridge] and Ubuntu 9.04[Jaunty]
wine is the best one, though i must mention ie4linux... really i can't live without having wine on my box, 'coz at some time you r compelled to test some stuffs on win and there it comes as the angel. WINE rocks..
I do not usually use any applications that are windows specific. Ubuntu works for me and better than windows could ever. But still keep wine just in case some need arise. Its good and runs pretty well most of the frequently run applications.
I must not under stand this category correctly, because of the absence of even mentioning Sun xVM VirtualBox.
I need Adobe's Web development Suite, and until Adobe releases a Linux version I am forced to occasionally use windoze. VirtualBox is absolutely amazing, version updates are easy and kernel updates are transparent. I have in the past used Win4Lin (nice product) and WINE (prefer mine out of a bottle).
By the way, if you are going to flame me about virtualization - the category is running windoze apps, WINE, Win4Lin have the same goal in mind. I am just stating my "opinion" which one satisfies that goal best for me.

got money $40 bucks each or discount to get both:cxOffice-deluxe, for ease of use of the average desktop user. (Hi grandma, the virus-free surfer.) but myself, I use wine.
for games since I test a lot, i test with the cxGames source. If I was lazy, I'd use cedega/playonlinux.
never use/will use: win4lin/clik n run.
