This is a good guide to Linux software:

Sometimes you'll find the Windows programs are not as essential as you thought they were.

Wine will run a lot of Windows software but sometimes things just won't run, or need a different version of Wine to the one you were given by Fedora. The website tells you all about it and has information on what works and what doesn't.
