	Wine can be run in any distribution (and is used by CrossOver  
Office), but will not run stuff like Adobe reliably (in my  
experience, it is really mostly good for lightweight little  
programs). It isn't a magic bullet, at least. Pretty much any distro  
that brags about Windows app support will use it. But, in fact, much  
of what Linux-XP is promoting is really just the apps that can open  
Windows that comes with other distros -- OpenOffice, GIMP, etc.
