Indeed, indeed it is.
Am I so audacious as to write this post in IE6 on Ubuntu? Indeed I am. Why would anyone want to even contemplate doing this? To test webpages in the browser still used by 65-85% of websurfers.
Thank you IEs 4 Linux (and Wine) for making this possible. I tried all the other “installing internet explorer with wine” howtos and tutorials (WineTools, Sidenet, manual installation, direct download) to no avail. Then I downloaded IEs 4 Linux, ran
./ies4linux, and got a working copy of IE with an icon on my desktop. Big freaking kudos to Sérgio Lopes.
