Dear All,
What is the limitation of wine. Can I use wine for applications like smartdraw,Microsoft word,etc. Is there any alternative to wine?


You probably won't be able to run MS Office applications with wine only. You may have more success if you set it up to use existing windows partition data. The better way is to use commercial applications based on wine - Crossover Office (www.codeweavers.com) and cedega (www.transgaming.com). Crossover Office gives support for MS Office and many other windows applications, cedega has DirectX implementation and used to run games.
Alternatives to wine would be VMware and Win4Lin. They allow you to run a windows OS (Win4Lin allows only Win95/98) on a hardware emulation.
