VMWare has gotten a lot better.  Last time I saw it in use was around 2002
and it was to get at IE, Word, Excel and to test out their system with
Windows printing and sharing.

Nowadays there are alternatives to VMWare, I just don't know them off the
top of my head.

I think the point is more how to have your Windows without pain. :)
