I'll resist the temptation to continue with a bunch of double-entendres. The Wine I'm talking about is the open source Windows emulator, and the crazy thing is using it to run PerlApp to make Windows executables on Linux.
Before I continue though, I have to add: Using ActiveState products under Wine is not supported. Please don't email ActiveState support asking for help with this, because it's not guaranteed to work. Your mileage may will vary.
