i'm not sure about the wine gui, but you can create links to applications with execute command being:

wine /path/to/windows_executable.exe

or you can create little shell scripts and create links to the shell scripts and put them on your desktop and click on them when you want to run a windows program.


cd "/winpar/winD/Adobe/Photoshop 5.0"

wine Photoshp.exe &

exit 0

If you feel like paying $40 for the privilege then you could try Crossover Office.
