    You can run Windows applications using Wine, or try CrossOver Office. You can get it
    here : http://www.codeweavers.com/ CrossOver Office is built on top of Wine. It's a
    shareware. You can run IE 6.0 , DreamWeaver, PhotoShop 7.0, PaintShop Pro 8,
    Office 2003, Offcie XP etc., on Linux!! Give it a try. You will definitely like it.

    Its easy to run windows software through Wine in Linux. All you need to do is open the terminal and enter the command : wine <path of exe file>

    You may need to configure Wine first.
