 +**    How to launch windows software? Emulate whole windows machine!**

 +sudo apt-get install virtualbox
 +</​code>​
 +
 +virtualbox
 +add machine, change network adapter to "intel desktop",​ drivers are here for winxp to specific folder that will shared later with vm (ie. "/​home/​anton/​downloads/​share"​)
 +set network mode to "​bridge",​ "​wlan0"​ for you local wifi adaptor (usually laptops), eth0 (lan adapter =cable), allow all
 +load *.iso installation media (ms windows installation disk)
 +proceed installation
 +start windows
 +click "​devices"​ and "​install guest additions"​ from "​oracle vm virtualbox"​ menu, download and install, reboot
 +click "​devices"​ and "​shared folders",​ add local folder to be visible in virtual machine, name it as you wish
 +locate it in vm by opening \\vboxsrv\share in "​windows exporer"​
 +install PRO2K3XP_32.EXE you just downloaded, network adapter will be born
 +WIN+R, cmd:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +ipconfig
 +ping google.fi
 +</​code>​
 +
 + .... a voila
 +
 +install your favourite software
 +
 +that was the biggest issue not to move to linux, because I was afraid of not be able to run my "​favorite"​ software pieces. As I discovered, it is easy.
 +
 +ps. launch "​system montitor"​ in linux to monitor activity
