If you have being thinking about moving to Linux lately but are afraid that you will not be able to run your favorite application from Windows... your probably right. BUT, there is hope, though there are many Windows programs, there is more than likely an alternative to use in Linux.
Moreover, that Linux program is probably better. When you have many people all over the world working a particular program (as it is with Open-Source software) you have the potential to surpass the smaller pool of minds from a "corporate" program. Though an application does not come from a "corporate" program, however, that does not mean certain Linux applications are not suitable for the business world. Some of the most secure and stable software is Open Source for Linux/GNU.
Take a look at this list here.
This list gets 5/5 Newbies!
We can't hardly mess this one up! ;)
