Program Will It Run? Note
Windows No Windows runs only on x86 type cumputers , the Pi is ARM.
WINE No Sorry. WINE is x86 only. And: dynamic translation is like faster-than-light travel. Propable : yes Viable: no .
Windows 8 NO ! Needs more RAM and will only run on Cortex/Tegra ("better" processors).
WinCE/ WinMobile /
WinXYZ
NO ! Oh well, you are really clever. You have loads of money to throw away (licenses + man-hours and more man-hours of work) , or what ? I assure you: You won't be able to run Win32 .exes (no Crysis) ! Don't forget : the primary aim is education - embedded apps (conformity+ testing) come later.
Netflix No Netflix Runs on proprietary technology which is not supported for Linux. There is a petition against that online.
Android ? Very propable , but NOT Ice Cream Sandwich ! Remember : 256 MB RAM ?
Minecraft No RAM usage is too demanding for the RPi. But you know , Minecraft geeks will come up with something. Perhaps a "lite" server.
Hulu ? Flash Based !
Java Yes Might be *slow* . No idea about browser plugins.
Flash No You can try gnash (GNU Flash) and gazillions of other projects. They are NOT a drop-in replacement for Adobes official thing.
YouTube Yes You can use the HTML 5 version of YouTube
