First, welcome to LQ, and to Linux.
Your question, though, is difficult to answer...it's like asking "how high is up?". A link for some programs that work on Linux? More like hundreds of thousands of links. A better question to ask would be "What is a program for Linux that does <whatever you'd like to do>?"
Your Windows software won't work on Linux, but chances are excellent there are other programs that do exactly what their Windows counterparts do, as well or better. Some examples:
Microsoft Office = OpenOffice, Kwrite, Gnumeric
Photoshop = GIMP
Internet Explorer = Firefox, Konqueror, Opera
Outlook = Thunderbird, Kmail, Evolution
There are lots of others...what are you looking for???
