Thanks to Wine or WineX you should be able to run your favorites Micro$oft tools.

However as last option you could as well give a try to VMware (30-day trial version)

Have fun !

Also checkout Win4Lin:-

Real Windows 95/98/Me as an application on the Linux desktop.

I have been using Win4Lin for 2 years now, here is a shot:-

If you need MSN, you can easily use GAIM. I have to use MSN at work and I prefer GAIM when using and logging in from home since I'm stuck on Windows at work. I hate the native MSN Messenger program made for Windows.

so many newbies start off thinking that they can install linux and keep using windows apps some way or other. eventually they realise (unless they've already givenup) that there are perfectly adequate replacements available for linux (except games)

I use vmware/windows for two reasons only.

1 My bank can't handle linux browsers.

2 Dreamweaver. For bigger websites it has, so far, no Linux alternatives.
