hello at home i use ubuntu as my main OS and i have grown very used to the ubuntu programs such as geany, bluefish, banshee and others.
my question is, is there some way i can use my linux programs on a windows system. i would prefer to run debian applications but i dont mind if i have to use redhat.
thanks in advance for the replies.

There are Windows versions for Geany and Bluefish since these are multi-platform apps.. Visit there sites for details.
For Banshee I guess not.. but personally I find it rather silly to use Banshee on Windows when there are a lot of multimedia-players for Windows and generally of better quality in my opinion.
Winamp and Foobar2000 come to mind.
