No really, it's marvelous. Think about it... you get all the
benefits of a truly enterprise DB (MSSQL) and world-class webserver
(IIS) without having to leave Linux. And thanks to the Wine project,
it Just Works.
The best part is that doing a simple "apt-get install wine" is much
easier then installing Windows and keeping it updated. Well, since
we're using Fedora for our production servers, it's more like "yum
install wine", but you get the picture.
1) Fedora generally has the latest packages, and that's *key* when
running Wine in production environment.
