honestly, I don't think that's a very clever thing. Even though the announcement may be true, even though it may work:
When I decided to move from Windows to Linux, I did that for a reason. So I wish to use Linux primarily. True, there are occasions were I find that Windows is a better choice. But in these situations, I want to use "real" Windows. Most of the time, a VM with Windows running in it is good enough for the purpose. In case it's not, I fire up the old PC with Windows still installed.

I did try WINE a few times (long ago), but found that it couldn't serve my purposes for most occasions, because the software I wanted to use needed something WINE wouldn't support. Currently, I don't even have it installed on any of my machines.

One can add in real windows dll's if they have them. I'd assume that these reports are simply illegal copies of MS work added in.
