Have you tred IEs 4 linux?


IEs for Linux is a simple Bash Script program that installs Internet
Explorer 6, 5.5 and 5 on Linux using Wine. The whole process is
automatic and very easy.

The only problem I had was the long download time...! IE6, 5.5, and 5
all work fine, no problems at all.

If wine worked as good as crossover, crossover would be out of
business. And I dont think they put all their changes back into wine;
if they do why would they publish a list of contributions?



P.S. after (how many?) years wine has finally gone Beta. repeat beta!
