Excluding games, most windows programs have a native Linux replacement. You are almost always better off using the native linux app than try to run a non-native app on Linux. On those few programs that do not have a native Linux equivalent (and do not run on wine), you can install VMware (or some other Virtual Machine) and run the app that way.
Im thinking along the lines of popular workplace applications. Say for example, someone uses Microsoft Office with Outlook connected to an Exchange server. Of course with many businesses you also have proprietary applications too.
Eventually I would like to setup a system similar in operation to Microsoft Terminal Server and have multiple users connect simultaneously.
