Agreed. You'll note, however, that your Subject line was "Running on
Linux" not "Running on Wine". I was only offering VMWare as an alternative.

Agreed. If you don't have a legal license you shouldn't be running
Windows on Linux. An opensource user cannot, in my opinion, expect the
various open source licenses to be honored if that same user does not
honor the licenses attached to proprietary software.
