http://blog.sudobits.com – In earlier versions of Ubuntu, actually up to 10.10, a Mac OS X transformation pack was available for Ubuntu users (based on GTK 2.*) but now the Ubuntu 11.10 (the latest stable version) or 12.04 LTS (only alpha versions are available right now) as well as other Ubuntu derivatives such as Linux Mint, are based on GTK 3 – so the transformation pack doesn’t work anymore.

How do I get Internet Explorer 8 to run in Ubuntu using WINE?view story

http://askubuntu.com – I've seen a dozen different ways to run Internet Explorer 7/8 through Wine and I've tried them all. None of them work properly.
