    Nate, when you say window emulator, could you be a little more specific? I kind of get what you mean, but I don't want to take a guess and be wrong.

    I am not really sure about this but I think lindows, the precurser to Linspire, was designed so that windows apps. can run on linux. So I am pretty sure that Linspire can run windows apps. But, I am not sure.

    For installation in dual boot with Linspire and windows:

    http://www.sadevelopment.com/ig/linspire/

    That requires PBM. THere are other ways to do it.

    Here's the way they do it at linspire:

    About windows emulators:
    http://www.linspireguide.com/CrossoverOffice

    You could try that for several windows apps.

    I've used crossover office and it works nearly as well as in windows. And they keep releasing newer versions. I wished it were free, but then if it were free, the development might have stopped ages ago.

    For gaming:

    WineX is a great product put out by transgamers. It allows you to play quite a few windows games in Linux, that otherwise wouldn't be supported:

    http://transgaming.org/gamesdb/

    Take a look at the link above for a database of games supported.

    Hope that helps.
