Program Will It Run? Note
My favorite PS3/PC game NO !
  1. The majority of games are made for Windows.
  2. The majority of these games are closed -source (no easy porting).
  3. The majority of these games are VERY resource intensive
    ( a Pi is a PII @ 300 MHz + 256 MB RAM - Note: MEGAhertz, MEGAbytes)
My favorite Web 2.0 / 1.0 App  ? As long there is no Flash content , of course. Might be slow. Check out the mobile/HTML5 versions.
facebook: yes , Google : yes , hulu : no , youtube: yes.
Windows No Windows runs only on x86 type computers , the Pi is ARM.
Windows 8 NO !
  • Will only run on Cortex/Tegra ("better" processors).
  • Needs more RAM
  • Only the tablet producers may make contracts with Microsoft.
    The producers do the porting work.
WinCE/WinMobile/
WinXYZ
NO !
  • Do you have loads of money to throw away
    (licenses + man-hours for debugging , porting , debugging again ) ?
  • Do you realise that you won't be able to run plain Win32 .exes (no Crysis !) ?
  • Do you realise that the primary aim is education ? - anything else isn't tested or
    will be accounted for (embedded applications , medical applications , rocket science)
WINE No Sorry. WINE is x86 only. Anything else is a pipe dream , believe me.
Netflix No Netflix uses proprietary technology which is not supported for Linux. There is
help request 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.
Java Yes Might be *slow* . No idea about browser plugins.
Flash No You can try gnash (GNU Flash) and many other projects.
They are NOT a drop-in replacement for Adobes official thing.
