    What do you mean "open .exe's"? If by that, you mean open self-extracting archives, it may be possible to open them with Stuffit Expander or ZipIt 2.2.2. OTOH, if you want to run Windows-based applications, you may try Bochs, one of the implementations of QEMU, or [God forbid] Guest PC. However, Virtual PC is so far ahead of the competition that the battle is for second place.

    If you don't like VPC, which I find to be an acceptable solution, albeit a bit slow, there isn't anything better out there.

    Do they have a Darwin Version of WINE - its linux based, but it'll sometimes open .exe files (depends on which ones you try to open)

    EDIT: Well I just got my answer http://darwine.opendarwin.org/
