This question already has an answer here:

I am having many apps on Windows which are really necessary for me but on Ubuntu 13.10 they don't work as it's a different operating system.

But I am not getting these software (like Maya, Adobe Photoshop, Nukes, etc.) for Ubuntu and I am in no mood to try their alternatives.

So I want to install them on my Ubuntu operating system but it seems impossible for me.

So is there any way to install windows applications in Ubuntu ?
