Wine is used to run Windows programs and games under Linux - if no native Linux program equivalent exists, or if you just really really want to run that Windows program . A good resource for using Wine is www.frankscorner.org - it has step by step instructions for a number of programs.

Wine takes out some of the hard work - it means that you don't have to rewrite things for Win programs. But be advised, not all programs work and of those working programs people have varying degrees of success. You will probably hit problems with .dll files or with Wine running in Win95 mode and the program needs Win 2000. These can be overcome, but do take a little bit of work.
As a stop gap, wine is great. But ideally, the manufacturers would write native Linux versions or there would be an equivalent program already existing.
