Why linux doesn't take a new step to run all exe files (for small and big software)
?
We all knw that linux is best os but if it can run all windows apps , it leads the window nd bcom a alone king in os market.

Linux running exe files would ultimately defeat the purpose of using the os in the first place. Linux is a secure operating system because it does not open those files. If every thing you need is an exe, use Windows...

haha nice joke..one of the things that make Linux better OS than Windows is the fact that it doesn't open .exe files.
