2) don't know if there's a Linux version for thouse programs, if there is you can download them and install them or if there no linux version, you will have to install them using wine and on theres a list of programs that you can install using wine...

3) You can try use wine for thouse programs or you can use alternatives like 7zip, or Mono for .Net, there's a linux version for mplayer but in my opinion VLC media player is better. this is the Mono web page to you to read about Mono project.

Cristi Nistor (cristi-nistor) said : #2 a good resource to start learning how Ubuntu is build and works. Wine is a Windows emulator which may help tun certain Win-base applications. here you can find more details. I think is more desirable to install a Linux version for the testing software application. IBM covers well Linux applications for testing purposes.

Can you help with this problem?
