I really wish that was true... Unfortunately it has quite some stuff to learn 
about usability and user interface. Besides that it is a wonderful programme.

As for the topic question: Starting to learn Linux from scratch may prove to 
be difficult, if you bare all the Windows stuff in mind. In some previous 
post it was recommended that you get some Linux beginner's book and that is 
really what I think will help the most, since it should introduce you to the 
Linux world step by step, one thing at a time.

One more thing connected directly to your question: You ask about exe files. 
In windows the file's name must end in .exe in order to be executed 
automatically. In Linux file names have no such restriction. The one thing 
that a file must meet as a requirement is to be marked as executable. I won't 
get into detail on how to do that (if you are somewhat familiar with the 
command line interface, check out manual for the chmod command by typing 'man 
chmod'), just letting you know.

Good luck!

Blade hails you...
