That depends if you consider using WINE as "running it on linux".

If so, then everything you can run in Windows, you can also run in Linux, even if not at 100% speed.

You cannot, by a loooooong shot, run every windows program under linux via wine.

You'll also have to define "run" for that.

If you mean run as in simply launching an application, not actually using it, then you can probably run everything.

Get a virus, get spyware, get malware, get the blue screen of death, get ads in every banner in every software in every segment of everything, get frustrated because you can't deal with multiple errors, lock ups, slow performances, pay for every piece of software no matter how insignificant [ Oh sorry about this one, you do get the notepad for free(1) ].

Play video games. (Please anyone telling me they can play three or four really cool games under Ubuntu, just save it..)

Thanks! Bye!

I've yet to be able to run Ruckus Music Player in Wine. It's a DRM-enabled music service for college students.

The ONLY thing (other than the obvious BSOD, Virus, etc) that I've missed is finding a decent music player that does what I want it to do. I know, I know. Amarok, xmms, vlc... I've tried (I think) every possible player that will run under Ubuntu/Debian and none of them really do what I want. And the ones I like from Windows won't run correctly under Wine for various reasons. And now Hardy is causing static and crackling but I WILL (by Gates:evil:) get this problem licked as well.
