    There are all sorts of programs and applications that can be used on wine, however there are just as many that cannot, so it's probably best to have a go with something that is fully supported.

    Have a read up the subject here: Wine HQ

    You will find lists of supported app's as well as lots of other info.

    Of course, what would be more ofan adventure for you would be to find open source replacements for the windows app's that you want to run on wine!
