There is an effort to port Wine to the ARM platform.  The problem is 
like that for the Mac PowerPC platform, you will need a CPU emulator 
until Windows programs start to appear for the target platform.  Given 
the number of ARM based 'objects', this may not be too far off.  
However, running an emulator AND a bloated Windows program may prove to 
slow for ARM processors as it did for the PowerPC platform.
