Re: Using wine to run Internet Explorer
Actually it does work pretty well as it is not just a front end, it actually does help install some program libraries wine cant install on its own so it makes installing things like IE8 a whole lot easier.
Its a more automated process as opposed the endless tedium of installing all kinds of libraries to get wine to work.
Same thing with Crossover office, it is also a front end to WINE that helps patch certain apps so they can work inside the wine environment.
Dont let your wine experience scare you away from trying one of its front ends, as often times the front ends work better.
