    Windows Programs and Games:

    Yes, there is either a Linux equivalent (M$ Office = Open Office) or there is a Linux port. Depending on what type of games you play, there is most likely a Linux port (CounterStrike, Doom III, etc.) if not there are ways to get them working.

    Uninstalling programs:

    See this topic.

    Programs and games that work on red hat:

    What type of programs? Media players? IM? CD ripping/burning? Let us know and we can point you in the right direction.

    For basic starters, there are tons of tutorials out there. This one is particular to Debian/GNU linux, but is still very good:

    Good luck.
