Good idea, this led me to load up a Server 2008 R2 box on one of our HyperV Servers and setup RemoteApp. No way am I configuring a tunnel back to our network

You are right though Internet Explorer development on wine has stalled. Nobody seems to care anymore

I'm sure it can be done, but internet explorer appears to be the last program on people's minds at the moment. I mean they got Office 2010 working in wine, but can't get Internet Explorer working
Yeah exactly; I know IE is an awful awful browser compared to Webkit / Gecko browsers, but still, MS crap needs MS crap.

It's probably a lot cleaner than any other solution. Things like Wine and others spread all kinds of crap throughout your OS X installation. From my experience it's by far the best to just run Windows as a guest PC and keep everything neatly contained.
Personally I have no issues with running Windows 8 as a guest on my iMac. But then again I have a 3,4 GHz Core i7 and 16 GB of memory at my disposal.
We'll I'm running this on a Retina Book with 8GB, runs more than fast enough but sometimes the Integration isn't very clean. (Copy pasta doesn't work sometimes).

what you get for your money is pretty sweet, but it's just one of those things you don't really want to pay for, especially at a monthly fee and it's not cheap either..
I gave up trying to run IE on a mac and now use an old laptop running windows 7 with a VM to XP, and i have every possible browser combination on them.
I'd do something similar if this was Development work, but simply to run a SINGLE WebApp, it's not worth it.
