Yup, like people said, try your hands on native Linux apps.

This link shall help you with it:


It is a table of corresponding Windows software in Linux, isn't a very
long list with every single programs in existence, but should be
enough for you to get started.

> Hi there
> I am in dire need of help getting started with Linux.  I have tried several distro's (at present trying to use "Simply Mepis" ) but with this distro as with all others I have tried I just can't get virtually any further than the install.  My immediate goal is to install "Crossover" in order that I may thus install DVD copy / burning programs but like with "Wine" I cannot get the install to work.  I have tried all varies ways of running the install scripts for both the aforementioned programs but to no avail.  I am sure that my problem is a very basic one but I am without a clue.  So can anyone help me?! I am willing to pay to have someone get me started.
> As a footnote, I have been using computers going back to the days of my first system a 286 with if my memory serves me correctly 4Mb of Ram. I THEN knew DOS backwards and have built / upgraded repaired many systems since so please don't think of me a complete dummy ......... just a dummy when it comes to Linux. Hope someone can / will help me.
