I got Ubuntu. Now I want to install MS Exchange on it. Which is the easiest and sensible way to go?

1) Install VM Ware + Win 2kx + Exchange?
2) Exchange with Wine? (I am still gathering information about Wine. So this might be a stupid question )

My machine is Intel Dual Core with 2 Gig RAM. Would it be sufficient to handle this load memory and resources wise. There won't be much "traffic" )? Right now I am looking at some development environment and not production. I will also be running Tomcat on the same machine. I know, I know, but that's all thats available for development at this stage.

More insights hints and suggestions would be most welcome.

My level of confidence in Wine is not very high. Even after all these years, some of my favorite apps misbehave. I'd recommend the VM route.

Your hardware "should" be sufficient, although I'm not sure what happens when you run Win2K anymore. Windows 2000 was the first version of Windows that attempted to keep the phone lines to Microsoft open at all times, which means that they could potentially do a "Kindle" on you for an end-of-life'd product.
