    The program he's most likely referring to is wine:

    Mind that it doesn't always work, though. Different people get it to work with more or less success. Personally, I've hardly got it to work at all (and I don't really care about it either; why would I want Windows programs after all?), but I hear all kinds of stories about people running Max Payne and you mention it in it.

    When it comes to Kazaa, I know nothing. I would heavily recommend against Kazaa. Use Direct Connect instead:

    DC-GUI is a Linux implementation of a Direct Connect client.

    I have tried using Kazaa, and in my experience, DC beats it any day. DC++ is yet another Windows client.
