Same for Linux as a primary OS:
emulate = slow
virtual/WINE/Parallels = almost normal.

Tatanka.com is still going strong, and IEs4linux is part of his stable of free 
software and it works great. No need to include the little chunk of 
quirksmode.org javascript to determine which version of IE you're looking at 
anymore either.
