IEs 4 Linux

IEs 4 Linux (seen here) is a small script that automagically downloads and installs Internet Explorer on a Linux machine. I was skeptical that it would “Just Work” ™, but I decided to give it a shot, and it did Just That. Ubuntu instructions:

$ apt-get install wine cabextract && ./ies4linux

Just answer the prompts and IE will be installed on youir machine, complete with a script for running it in your $HOME/bin directory and a shortcut on your desktop (which I promptly deleted…but hey, some people like desktop icons…) Most impressive.
