    Probably.
    Read about Wine:
    Wine (software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    And check this link:
    Wine AppDB - Wine Application Database

    I play Counter Strike: Source and some other games over Wine, without problems.

    Don't you have to reinstall all of your apps for wine to be able to run them...?

    In a way. Since Windows software won't install on a Linux box without some sort of emulation program, you'll have to install Wine first and then you can move on to installing the other apps.
