You can't do online banking in China without being able to emulate the login features and activex controls from IE6.  There are also some other popular programs that are hung up on this over here.  It's the main stumbling block to switching most casual computer users over to linux.

Wine's IE merely looks like IE6. Under the hood, it uses the same engine as Firefox. That's why websites and apps that rely on ActiveX controls need real IE installed to work in Wine.
