I installed an alpha of Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10) just now. Virtualbox is an application developed by Sun that has a free and open source version. Virtualisation software can be used to run a full windows environment to run those annoying apps that have bugs, or just won’t work in wine. (Wine has come a long way, but it’s still not really there.) The best feature of virtualbox, something beating commercial products is the ability to run in “integrated mode”. After installing, simply press Hostkey(Right Ctrl by default) and L. Voila.
