Testing IE 6,7, and 8 on Ubuntu

14 Aug 2012

I've tried many ways:

  • Wine that comes with a fake IE, but it's a fake one
  • Trying to install IE6 with Wine, but it doesn't work because of the fucking fake IE is there
  • Trying VirtualBox, which requires a Windows CD…

But `ievms` from https://github.com/xdissent/ievms is the only one that works.

It is actually based on VirtualBox, but Windows XP's CD is embedded.

It works perfectly ok, pun intended.

The only annoying problem is the screen resolution.
