I havent checked Win4BSD for longer time so I will not add any input here, but WINE does the job, I can play Fallout / Heroes of Might and Magic III without any problems, ocasional Windows apps also does not make a problem.

I personally use WINE + Win Opera + Win Flash 10, works very good (only when in need of flash/java of course), its a lot faster then doing that @ Win4BSD, I would want to see a VirtualBox port to FreeBSD, its very fast especially with Guest Additions.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
