You do not want Windows or just not want to boot in Windows? That's the question to ask if we don't find Linux softwares to replace.

Myself I am depended on Quicken and MS Excel. To avoid booting Windows, I am using Win4Lin to run Window'98 within Linux (Arch). Its not free (US$ 89.99). There is also VMWare but the license is costly. I made one Arch package for Win4Lin5. If you want to try, get a 30 days free trial licence.

WineX is no longer free - transgaming started charging for it or something lame like that and called it "cedega"

Re: What should i do?

yeah, I use VMWare. Mostly use it to test linux distros lately, and to run software dev arch instances (web test mostly)
