Wine is definetely usefull, but can only be used as a partial solution -
some specific applications do require windows to be fully installed to run.
I'm not only talking about games, I'm also talking about critical apps that
some people or companies cannot go without (eg. : accounting, banking,
etc.). I think that three separate screencasts could be made : Wine, VMWare
and VirtualBox. The screencasts dedicated to WMWare could show how to embed
a Windows OS within Ubuntu from scratch, as well as accessing an existing XP
installation from within Ubuntu.
