Best Windows emulator?


Would like to be able to run some Windows programs under Linux - can anyone advise on what works best? I'm specifically looking to rry running programs such Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia Dreamweaver and Fireworks.

Thanks,
M.

WINE should be able to deal with those. See also Frank's Corner - there are a number of how tos there.

Well here is another option for you depending on what you are looking for. You could use vmware. I like it for the ability to work for both winblows and linux. I believe you can also use the files for it to run such as virtual disks and config files and run them from one system onto another system. I could be mistaken though.

Bochs will also run Windows in Linux.
