I am somewhat annoyed by the fact that most programs/games/everything else seems to be Windows only (.exe). Is there something that allows Ubuntu to support/run .exe files? Thanks!

There is a very good project called WINE. You could try that by typing

sudo apt-get install wine

It will automatically associate .exe files to be opened by WINE.

See: http://appdb.winehq.org/ for supported apps and games.

  • No problem. It will be good if you could check your question as solved.
