Linux Desktop?

Someone in this group said they were able to get Vantage to run on a Linux
machine using a Windows emulator (Cross-over Office I believe).

I can offer two other options that work great for me. Both require a
Windows Terminal Server with Vantage installed. There are two programs that
allow Linux / Unix machines to connect to Windows terminal servers. They
are tsclient and rdesktop. I've used both and they work great. You could
do the majority of your work in a Linux environment and connect to the
Terminal Server if you needed to use Vantage.

Is anyone out there using Linux as a desktop operating system using Vantage,
email client software for Exchange, etc.

I.E. As a client operating system in a MS/Windows environment ...
