I use cross over office for my basic windows app needs. It's using
Wine underneath. I looked up Tradestation but they do not seem
to officially support it. I also run VMware and rdesktop in for
some of my other windows needs. Ironically I need VMware to run
windows to run the client app for my big VMware clutser. I thnk there
are free or cheap versions of VMware and I've never had any
major problems setting them up under Linux.
