Internet Explorer 7 for Linux
Internet Explorer 7 for Linux is in the pre-alpha stage, but the proof-of-the-concept already exists.
Well-known author of Internet Explorer 4, 5 and 6 versions for Linux writes, that he already tried and successfully run IE7 (RC1) on Linux operating system. You can see Internet Explorer 7 for Linux on this screenshot.
Please, remember this is only the pre-alpha demonstration and as Tatanka.com says, there is a long way to make it IE7 fully usable on Linux.
The only requirement for now is to change Wine behaviour to Windows XP.
I am not sure how we will be able to run multiple versions together, if Wine is in Windows XP mode (other versions need Windows 98).
Please revisit this topic again (for Fedora 14+ or ubuntu lucid+ or another popular distro preferably with a spiffy software manager like ubuntu)
With a gifted laptop for a family member I have been trying various linux distros. The niggling issue is that the interweb Real Estate system INANELY "requires" Internet Explorer. I have already tried user agent spoofing but the MLS [Multiple Listing "service"] does rely on IE.
Using the gaming application I was able to install once IE6 and later IE7 but MLS requires IE rendering capabilities not available that way... and ies4linux is for site development not production use :(
I really really don't want to run XP in Virtual Machine. I want pure *nix on this IBM latop. XP is the last microsoft OS any system in my house will run.. unless microsoft backs away from win7 kludgery which is itself unlikely.

cheers and good luck with the headlight
