Ideas for what exactly?-)

If you/they absolutely need IE6/IE7, try IEs4Linux.

Why iTunes? DRMed music? You lose by definition. If it's only about playing music, try Amarok (or Rhythmbox if you avoid KDE). So far Amarok has been the only music player with GUI I've actually liked.

Generally speaking Wine may help you out.
