i've recently started re-evaluating wine.   it has improved imensely
since the last time i tried it four years ago.  back then, running
notepad.exe was an achievment.  now i can run elite forces without too
many probs.  not fast, but it works.

i'm not saying it'll run the software they want to use, but it has
improved to the extent that the odds are probably even.

the article does'nt say what licenses it needs.  if its M$, the yes wine
is an option.  but if its for some CBT packages, linux isnt neccesarily
going to be the best option.  this point would need to be clarified
