    I've looked for something like this for a long time and can't believe it took this long to stumble upon, a way to run Windows applications on other OSes. It's name is Wine, a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant OSes. I have no computer running a Linux distro in my household, but if someone would do a couple tests with this, that would be amazing as I'm thinking about getting this on mah future Pi :D

    I dual boot Windows and Ubuntu on my desktop, so I don't really need Wine too much. But I've used it before and it works sometimes. Its definitely not a perfect program, so don't expect to be able to do everything you can on Windows using Wine.

    Here is a big site listing all the games you can run with Wine, depending on the version of Wine and game. Note that these guides aren't completely accurate either, all kinds of weird stuff could happen.
