I don't know linpus, but maybe you can also try the wine - windows emulator. It works excelent for me in fedora 10 and I will try it also in F12. If you have a dual system on the computer (win and linux) there are some win programs that can be run from linux with wine. I think that also you can install some win programs in linux with wine.
Just google it for wine and see what you get....
That, of course, if you are still in live with some win programs.

Oh christ no. Leave Wine for another day. Or year. It's the very last thing a new Linux users needs to know exists.

if you're getting dependency issues, you're doing something wrong, are you using yum and online at the time?

Other clients, just google. very quick to find what's available just like for windows.
