Understood.  It doesn't seem then that this will extend to the Linux host environment, if that is what the question was inquiring.

Wine Viruses -- What would be infected would be the Windows environment within Linux, just like a stand-alone Windows. (We're not talking about Linux getting infected.) If you're Windows environment is full-fledged, it should probably include a virus scanner.

You can run the default firewall, ipchains and don't install crazy stuff.  I've never had any Unix/Linux based system get infected, ever.

I also scan the disks with various utilities to identify a virus. You can cron them.

Also, once you install WINE, you've just enabled Windows viruses in your linux environment. Oops.

Very unlikely but if a virus infected a windows file in Wine, it would be restricted to the virtual C: drive and could not get to the Linux base system.   I have never heard of a Linux system infected with a virus through wine.   If there is any doubt then use PlayOnLinux which creates a virtual folder for each application.

To me, a pet Windows inside a VM guest makes much more sense.  Even though you're running two separate operating systems, you can flip between them with just a single mouse click, and you can easily share data between them with a shared folder or removable memory stick. A much better solution, imho. I tried WINE once and gave up after the hassle of installing a single app. Also, once you install WINE, you've just enabled Windows viruses in your linux environment. Oops.

Sort of light office comedy a la "The Office" and paced more like the American version. It accurately echoes the idiocy of the snobs who look down on and rely on IT. I liked it and the memes like "Did you try turning it off and back on again" caught on.

Currently engaged in that show, looks promising.

I run a few Windows programs on Linux.

* Notepad++
* Evernote but the paid version
* Several writing programs including PageFour, All My journals, Smart Edit

I did run Internet Explorer under Wine for a while but I found no use for it since I have no sites which require IE.   All of the sites I use work fine in either Chrome or Firefox.

Anything which is difficult to run under Wine I run in a Windows VM.

Most other Windows programs I run have a Linux version, for example Writers Cafe, Jutoh, Xojo and others.

Its a losing battle trying to get anything Windows to run on a non-Windows OS.  Even if you can, its just a PITA.  MS made sure to keep their stuff proprietary.
