Normal Games -- how to run?

Hey guys. I'm new here and have a lot of questions... but my first is:

Can you run games in Ubuntu like GTA:San Andreas or Counter-Strike:Source?

Also, is there a iTunes for Linux?

Some Windows games can be played on Linux.

Check out Wine first. It is free and is available through Ubuntu.

Other programs are commercial and you have to pay for them. They include Cedega and Win4Lin.

There is no actual iTunes for Linux but many of the functions are available through existing programs eg Amarok. Are you looking for any particular function?

Well I bought songs off of iTunes, and I believe that iTunes is the only player that play's it, right?
