On the games front especially, I would check out: transgaming.com
. Great support (IMHO) for running win games (and apps).
The business model is interesting...the user-base decides via a voting system what products or issues the company will work on. It costs $5 per month to join/vote and get your hands on winex (the linux app that allows you to run the win programs). They've also tackled their first DirectX 8 title, Max Payne (still a work in progress).
As far as apps goes, well ... depends on what you're into.
