Windows 7: Can I run Linux applications and games under Windows 7?

Can I run Linux applications and games under Windows 7?

Can I run applications and games that are written for Linux under Windows 7 using any third-party utility? Because I love the apps and games on Linux distros like Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Gentoo, MEPIS, etc. I know that there is a utility for Linux users to run Windows apps and games on their distros, that is named "Wine". So is there any software like this to run linux apps under Windows?

I think no. But you can install Linux on virtual machine if you want and play games
