yeah, you can using an emulator like wine, but it has to be installed and properly configured. also wine is still a bit unstable, you can try an alternative like Win4Lin or vmWare..

well, i only know the basic of Wine and dont really use it but it depends on what you want to run and open, sometimes it is easier and sometimes it is ver hard to configure to get working.

You said Lin4Win which is a program to install and have a linux window running in windows.. i mentioned Win4Lin which you can have the windows desktop as a separate process running within linux... its faster than vmware and doesn't use as much resources.
