Because you are probably downloading programs compiled to run on a different operating system. Can you tell us what you downloaded?

Arrow help-me...

hlo,

and while you're posting it, maybe change the thread-name to something more significant - is helpful

There are plenty of games for linux. And today 'wine' often works very good (windows-apps and games)...
