The only reason BF3 won't work is because it requires at minimum DX10. And currently the only support we have is for DX9. Other than that, you can run plenty of Windows programs without a single problem whatsoever. Also, the only programs you would NEED to use from Windows on Linux are games. Other than games Linux has programs that are equal or greater than their Windows Counterparts.
You are the negative person indeed, and that kind of attitude is what probably lead you to your problems. When a problem arises you need to learn to cool down, step back, and look at what the problem is. In most cases the answer is right in front of you.
