I've got a brand new MAC for school but a bunch of the programs I need to run are Windows-only. Is there any way to run them from my MAC computer or do I have to install windows on it somehow?

The cool thing about wine is it works for Linux too, so once you figure it out you're set to move over to a much better OS.

Here's a link to a good explanation and a free bit of software. I haven't tested the software so it's up to you to try it or not as the case may be.
