How good are Win4BSD and Wine for FreeBSD for simple desktop applications? Would it be possible for me to install lets say Win4BSD + Win Opera + Flash and Java plugins? I tried running a Linux distro inside Qemu on my OpenBSD desktop in order to use Flash and Java since I need it in order to access my insurance informations . After I got couple core dumps I just gave up.
Java plugins are ROCK solid on OpenBSD + FIrefox although there is no binary distro for plugins (yes I do know there are binaries for JDK 1.7 but they do not contain plugins) so I made my own repository for my machines

Unfortunately Gnash just can not cope with most Flash sites as it is only
7.0 able
