Wine

http://www.winehq.org/
Run Windows programs on GNU/Linux, OS X and BSD

Wine lets you run Windows programs on GNU/Linux, OS X and BSD by reimplementing the Windows libraries.

Warning: some GNU/Linux distributions recommend installing the non-free Microsoft fonts when installing Wine through a package manager. To fix this, install using the --no-install-recommends switch.
