I recently setup win98 inside Qemu to run Windows apps under Linux. It took a little effort, but I
can run windows apps under Fedora Core 2 from within Win98.

It works, its free and if an individual has a fast enough machine, and an old windows licence its another option. Likewise an organization that has either a site license for windows or old licenses they are not using could use this technique at low or no cost.

I do web development, on my linux workstation .. os having an easy way to render pages in ie is handy.
