This is simply incredible. Internet Explorer 6.0 can run on Linux. I was a skeptic, so I had to try it. Now I am a true believer.
Of course, that still doesn't answer the question, Why? For me, however, it is to get more website compatibility and a higher version of Flash (Flash on Linux is limited to 7.0 r63, at least on Fedora FC5). Plus, it is amazingly cool---like, beyond the "kudos to Mr. Hacker" kind of cool...all the way to the "hey, I think I'll donate real money to this mad-scientist Linux guru-type who actually pulled this crazy stunt off" kind of cool. In fact, I just did. I'm that impressed.
