you can use winemaker to develop windows programms under linux.
headers and stuff in winemaker should be the same as in windows.
so it should look familiar.

linux offers many development tools ( compiler, debugger etc ) out of the box.

Office 2000 and internet exporer still have many bugs under wine.

but i know codeweavers sells crossoffice.
this is an version of wine ( costs $ 54,95.- ) with office improvement.
it is able to run microsoft office / internet explorer and a few other apps
almost flawless, i guess this would be your best bet for now.
checkout for more info.

but it is not yet ready ( scheduled for wine 0.8 ?? )
