Virtual Box is another good one. You can create a virtual server and run Windows and associated apps on it.

the headaches of windows and the microsoft strong arm stuff is what they want to get away from but lets face it there are alot of programs that are made for windows only that people want to run.... as far as IE the best thing I can say for wanting that is 2 fold... some sites only work with IE and then of course there are the website designers who need to check a sites compatibility with ie...
