I'd say Virtual Box is a tad more difficult to set up than a dual boot (but
_only_ a tiny bit, and well worth it in the end).
Wine, I completely agree, is dead simple. Now, for some _applications_, the
configuration under Wine can be a complete pain in the arse... (I spent
_weeks_ getting ies4linux working - but that was at least 2 years ago, no
idea how it is now), but for those applications that do work under Wine
without tweaking, it's trivial.
