I've been looking very very seriously in to Q4OS (which is a Debian derivative). It's quite nice, and I've noticed a LOT of Windows applications working on Wine. Might be a good idea.

No, I'd agree with that. I'd prefer they not have it either. That's why I use Windows 8 RTM. I wish the "haters" of Windows 8 would realize what an opportunity they're passing up. Install Windows...
