I am planning to switch from Windows XP to Ubuntu 12, Just want to know is Wine supports all the windows Apps/ Games. it would be crucial as I worked on Windows for almost 7 yrs.

    It doesn't run everything and it's sometimes very instable. If you want to switch to Linux you should know that you'll have to leave some software behind. Don't worry: there are many alternatives and you'll eventually feel right at home.

    Wine is awesome, but it does not work for everything (especially games). Wine's website has a list of supported applications. If windows app support is crucial, then you are probably better off using Windows in a virtual machine (though that does not fix the games issue)...

    No it can't run all windows applications, there's a compatibility list of software which you can run using wine

    Games may prove to be a problem.
    For applications, I suggest that you look for an alternative program in Linux which does the same thing, instead of bringing your Windows programs to Linux.

    No, it doesn't run all the programs. But it does run very useful programs.

    In brief: No.
    Games in particular get very choosy about the OS environment

    WineHQ has a compatibility list. Just check to see if the applications you want to run are on there. You can also check to see if there are alternatives to the Windows applications you use that are on Ubuntu.
